Beginners Shibori pattern making craft courses

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

Location – Gunhill, East Sussex

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.

The day also includes a lovely light lunch in the garden with a cake and tea break towards the end.

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.

We provide everything, including one long silk or 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.

    Such a fantastic afternoon, so great to hear all about the background of Shibori and learn how to make different patterns and then have the opportunity to get so creative and hands on. Lisa is a fantastic teacher and brilliant hostess, giving us all the tools and knowledge to create our own designs. So pleased with my creations and definitely want to do it all again!! Highly recommend, its a great workshop to do on your own, with friends or would work brilliantly for team building events too.

    I loved my day with Lisa trying my hand at indigo dyeing. She’s a highly motivated, hardworking and passionate teacher, knowledgable and also approachable. She ensured we all got to try various methods and to express ourselves. Her enthusiasm for our efforts was empowering! I would highly recommend taking her class. Huge fun.
