Shibori and Indigo Workshop at Refold – Part 1

November 17, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Refold studio space

Shibori is a resist technique in which fabric is given a 3-dimensional shape by processes such as stitching, folding or tying. Traditionally the fabric is then dyed and later the threads securing the fabric are removed to reveal the pattern. We will try a number of techniques and dye our fabrics in the indigo vat.

Refold studio

The workshop consists of a 90 minute introductory meeting followed a week later by a full day workshop. At the introductory meeting we will look at samples of different techniques and I will give you two small pieces of homework to complete before attending the actual one day workshop.

Thursday 17th November 2016, 3:30 to 5:00pm – Part 1
Thursday 24th November 2016, 10am to 5pm – Part 2

“If you have your own group of five people and you would like me to run a workshop for you, please feel free to contact me.
I will be in Japan from 19th October to 8th November to study Indigo, Shibori and Katazome (stencil resist), and I really look forward to sharing my experiences and new inspirations when I return.

With best wishes
