Lynne Britten - Shibori & Indigo Workshop

Lynne Britten - Shibori & Indigo Workshop

This is now a 1 Day workshop on Sunday 15 January

Simply put - shibori is Japanese for tie dye.  But it is so much more than rubber bands and string!  Learn how to stitch, wrap, tie, fold, clamp, and twist fabric to create beautiful patterns with the traditional blue indigo dye.

This will be a day of totally hands on textile art.


The indigo vat will be mixed up in front of you (no secret alchemy behind closed doors), and you will be shown, step by step,  how to do arashi (pole wrap), itajime (clamping), and multiple stitched resists, as well as  ne-maki (bound) and the list goes on…

Lynne will provide the expertise, knowledge and indigo - you just need to bring fabric and enthusiasm.  No experience required - just some prep work to be done prior to the workshop, instructions will be sent out....…
