Event description

Description

Discover the magic of indigo-shibori dyeing!

We’ll cover the basics of this ancient Japanese dyeing technique, including preparing an indigo dye vat and techniques for creating shibori patterns on fabric. Using pre-reduced indigo, you’ll dye a pair of cotton indigo tea towels, a cotton bandana scarf as well as an item of your choosing brought from home. You’ll leave this inspiring 3-hour workshop with your own one-of-a-kind creations, and the skills and knowledge to continue dyeing textiles on your own.



You’ll need to bring:

-One freshly-washed item of your own (scarf, t-shirt, pillowcase, fabric scraps, etc) to dye. Natural fibres such as cotton, linen and silk accept colour the best. Please avoid bringing bulky items (towels, bedding, blankets) as space in the dye vat is limited.

-Clothes (or an apron) to wear that you don’t mind getting dirty. Dyeing can be messy, and our indigo is permanent!

All dye stuffs, shibori binding material, tea towels (2 per person) and bandana scarf are included in the cost of this workshop.
