If you still want to attend this class, please first consider government restrictions in VIC. If you are currently allowed to attend, but are later prevented from doing so, we will either postpone your booking, or refund you. You are always welcome to gift this class.

Learn the ancient Japanese art of Shibori fabric dyeing, creating unique and intricate patterns under the guidance of Roz Slade from Be Kind Textiles.

You’ll while away the morning folding, twisting and manipulating fabric, then get your hands dirty in a natural indigo vat to dye your creations. After a healthy experimentation session, you’ll select either a tea towel or tote bag to dye and take home (they also make great gifts).

Roz will walk you through a number of shibori techniques, explain the history and uses of indigo dye, and outline how to create and maintain a natural indigo vat to keep dyeing at home. You’ll leave with the fabrics you’ve created, your own tea towel or tote bag, and the knowledge and inspiration to pursue shibori at home. All materials are provided, just bring along your creativity and curiosity. Omoshiroi desu ne!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • Your own shibori tote bag or tea towel

  • A comprehensive lesson in the history and practice of shibori

What to bring

Feel free to bring along any white or light coloured items you wish to dye such as clothing, scarves, pillowcases or napkins. Plain white fabric is supplied along with a plain tea towel or tote bag.

Clothes you don’t mind getting dye on.

Roz is a Melbourne based textile designer and maker that explores the importance of the connection people have with textiles and the appreciation for the hand crafted.

After Graduating RMIT Dip. Textile Design and Development where she focused her study on sustainable materials and intricate mindful designs, she stepped away from the outward pressure put on her to create wasteful products using materials and supply chains with questionable ethics.

She now prefers a slower more thoughtful design process. Roz teaches textile-based workshops around Melbourne and Regional Victoria, hosted by a variety of organisations and venues, combining her love and knowledge of textiles with the therapeutic act of hand-making.

Her label Be Kind Textiles is about what she loves doing most, creating thoughtful quality products, while using sustainable methods, ethically sourcing materials and being kind to the earth.
