Need fun things to do at home? Try the Japanese art of shibori dyeing!

In this live streaming workshop, you will learn how to create and maintain an Indigo dyeing vat, fibre preparation, safety and more.

Working with traditional Japanese shibori techniques I will show you how to create unique and interesting designs on fabric.

Easy to understand. Practical tuition. Good value for money And FUN. The one vat that we conjured ( that’s what it feels like) will last many more sessions. Thankyou!

Nichola had the tutorial down pat! Her instructions were very clear, concise and comprehensive. She covered a lot of ground in a very efficient way. I now feel very confident to put the techniques into practice.

Excellent online class by Natalia. The structure of class easy to follow and the different camera angles helped to fully see what was required to complete the class. I found the box of supplies were generous and well labelled so it was easy to find exactly what you needed to complete the dyeing process on your own. Thank so much. I will be happy to do other classes with you. Bev
