Shibori Dyeing with Indigo Daze

Shibori Dyeing with Indigo Daze


Sunday 23rd May

10am – 1pm

Shibori is the traditional Japanese art of folding, clamping and dyeing fabric. 

It is a fun way to make unique scarves, decorate fabric for sewing projects and for upcycling found thrift shop items. 

Using Indigo to dye, rather than commercial dyes create a gradation of Blue shades on the fabric.

Indigo works best with natural fibres such as silk, linen and 100% cotton. 

In this workshop we will learn how to:

  • Fold and clamp fabric to create patterns.
  • Explore different methods and materials that can be used for clamping.
  • Set up an Indigo vat using an Indigo Kit.
  • Dye fabric using the Vat.

We will create 2 silk scarves, one to keep and one to give away, plus either a linen tea towel, or a fabric square for a cushion.

Meet new friends and enjoy a morning spent with like-minded creative people.

Workshop participants may like to bring one small item of clothing (suggestion is something bought from a thrift shop!) to give a new lease of life to.

Looking forward to meeting you.
