messageIndigo / shibori dying - one day taster course
Posted by mettelw 12 November, 2018 17:39

In this workshop, you will learn the steps involved in creating an indigo vat and experience the magic that results from indigo dyeing. After preparing the vat, we’ll take time while it rests to prepare yarn and fabric to make solid colours and patterns. We’ll cover traditional methods of shibori resist dyeing – folding, clamping, scrunching and binding - to create beautiful repeat patterns.

There will also be a chance to discuss some of the keys aspects of dyeing with indigo (fibre preparation, maintaining a vat and overdyeing to create complex colours).

The cost of the session is £65. All participant will receive comprehensive notes on the processes covered and samples of fabric and yarn dyed in the workshop. You can bring along a piece of fabric or a small garment to dye in the workshop but I will have some silk, wool and organic cotton available to purchase and dye on the day.

This session takes place at Space at 61, 61 Cheltenham Road, Nunhead SE15 3AF. To book your space on this workshop, please email me
