Learn the ancient Japanese art of Shibori dyeing. Manipulate fabrics with tiles, clamps and an array of folding, stitching and tying techniques to achieve unique aesthetics. Be amazed as indigo vat dyed pieces oxidise before your eyes and turn from green to blue. Fabrics provided. You're welcome to bring your own too. Fabrics can be: cotton, linen, hemp, tencel, bamboo and silk.

All students will take away with them a range of dyed samples, as well as an item of their choosing each out of a T-shirt, tote bag or tea towel - something to treasure for years to come.

Beginners welcome. Fun and relaxed environment. Great gift idea for creative folks!

Carizza was super friendly and knowledgeable. We had a great time learning many different shibori techniques and getting to be experimental with all sorts of materials and objects. We walked away with a fun new skill and many beautiful shibori artworks.
