Beginners Shibori pattern making craft courses

22 JULY 2023 . 10AM -3PM

Location – Wheathampstead, Hertfordshire.

Textile workshops offer you the chance to be inspired to design and make your own hand-dyed shibori creative textiles.

This sort of workshop is a great get together where you can meet new people and enjoy the process of making pattern using a traditional Japanese process. Shibori craft courses are a great one day workshop where you can arrive knowing nothing and leave with arms full of beautiful indigo and shibori textiles.

I will demonstrate setting up a natural indigo vat using the Michel Garcia 123 fructose recipe. She will guide you through the basics of shibori pattern making using clamping and binding techniques.

Please wear old clothing and shoes that you won’t mind getting splashed on with indigo. An apron is a good extra layer too and a pair of rubber gloves.

I do provide everything, including one long organic cotton scarf, but please feel free to also bring anything you’d like to dye and up cycle (cotton, linen,hemp, silk, white denim etc – just make sure it has had a good wash to encourage good indigo uptake).

Unlock the textile designer within you.
