Eco Dyeing and Shibori Workshop

In this workshop you will explore eco dyeing using natural materials and then look at shibori techniques.

In the first part of the class you’ll use materials such as leaves, flowers, nails, beer caps, berries to dye a piece of silk that can be used then for a scarf, to wrap a gift or to form part of another project.

While the silk bundles are steaming you can explore Japanese shibori techniques. Shibori dyeing is a way of making patterns on fabric by exposing only some portions of the fabric to dye. Tie, pinch, fold, concertina, clamp and stitch your fabric then dye it.

This workshop is a great opportunity to enjoy handmade processes and have fun learning how to continue these traditional crafts.
