Description

Shibori tie dye – design and dye a tote bag - Cost £25 per person


In this 90-minute introduction to shibori tie dye binding techniques you will learn a few of the main methods of compressing cloth using binding thread to make a variety of patterns.

Shibori is a Japanese resist dyeing technique that has been practiced in Japan for hundreds of years. Traditionally used to pattern silk and cotton kimonos, it became more widely known as tie dye in the 1960s when it was discovered and brought over to the West. Shibori comes from the Japanese verb “Shiboru”, which means to squeeze or to wring.

In the class you will learn:

How to tie a kamosage knot (essential for all Shibori binding projects)
How to make the following:
- Kanoko (fawn) dots
- Bai (shell)
- Ne maki ("bird" binding with beads)
- Kumo (spiderweb) and
- Tesuji (stripes)

You will make a few sample pieces using these techniques and then design and dye a cotton tote bag as a project to take away with you.

We will be dyeing using non-toxic Dylon dyes in a variety of colours. It is advisable to wear old clothes or bring an apron to protect your clothes.

All materials, dyes and fabric will be provided.

Max class size: 8
