Description

Shibori, also known as Japanese tie-dye, is a traditional style of fabric dying using folding and tying techniques to create beautiful, delicate patterns.

In this fun and hands-on class with Annabel Hume, you will learn everything you need to know to start hand dyeing like a pro! This includes learning the basics of creating an indigo dye-bath using pre-reduced indigo crystals, and traditional Shibori techniques to create unique patterns and designs on cloth. Participants will be provided with large pieces of fabric and a tote bag to dye on the night.

Participants are also welcome to bring along an additional light coloured piece of fabric along with them on the night if they wish to do some more experimenting!

The class was a big disappointment. The instructor had no confidence in what she was teaching and constantly said we were better at it than her. The venue was awful, it was a construction site and cold and dusty.

We learnt different ways to fold and manipulate fabric to achieve different designs when dyeing fabric. The facilitator was lovely, lots of knowledge. I went with a friend, we had a great time ! Would absolutely do other classes
