First part of a two part mini course in the Japanese technique of stitched shibori for resist dyeing with indigo.
In part one you will learn a little bit of the history and some of the methods of stitched shibori, and make some stitched shibori samplers.
In part two the following week you will be introduced to the history of indigo dyeing, dye vat processes and have the opportunity to dye your samplers from the previous week as well as a finished item to take home (cloth tote or similar).
If you wish to dye something of your own such as a t-shirt please contact the teacher, there is an additional charge of £5 for preparing the fabric in advance.
This course is suitable for complete beginners and those with some textile or dyeing experience that wish to try or spend some time focusing on a new technique.
