About the Course

Join a one day shibori dyeing workshop with textile artist Amanda Duke.

This successful natural dyeing course usually runs annually at Sussex Prairie Gardens and other places but this is the first time I am running it from my home. There is plenty of space, rain or shine and the course will have a maximum of 6 participants.

Shibori is a traditional Japanese hand dye technique. You will be introduced to a variety of resist techniques that make exciting surface patterns including folding, tying, clamping and stitching. After preparing your fabric you will dip each piece in a an indigo dye vat. After a few minutes magical and exciting surface patterns will be revealed. Make a fabric and even a paper stash suitable for further textile experiments, stitching, quilting or present wrapping.
Either bring your own pieces of cotton or silk fabric pre-scoured for dyeing (no bigger than 1m sq or purchase fabric by the metre from me.

What's included in the price?

Relaxed and informal yet busy and productive. There will be a limitless supply of coffee and tea all day and a light lunch will be provided.

Other notes: Amanda has found in the past that students have very different rates of productivity when preparing and dyeing their samples. Either bring your own fabric to dye or Amanda can supply at a reasonable cost. Making items to wear is totally possible on this day if you either bring a couple of items with you or purchase items for dyeing on the day.
