LO’S-28 Shibori Dyeing with Indigo
Skill level: Beginners and experienced students
Kit cost: $50.00 (payable to tutor)
An introduction to the world of Japanese resist-dyeing using traditional shibori techniques with Leanne O’Sullivan from Kimono House. Fold, clamp and stitch cotton and silk fabric for indigo dyeing to make your own scarf or wrapping cloth, pocket-square or handkerchief in the brilliant blue that only indigo can produce. This class will cover how to prepare a simple version of an indigo vat, which can then be easily repeated at home. The objective of the class is to produce relatively quick results for students to gain a basic understanding of the concept of shibori dyeing in indigo and the skill to then be able to reproduce a number of patterns.
Students who have previously attended a shibori dyeing class with Leanne will be able to extend their knowledge by working a variety of different patterns.
Dates: Thursday 22 and Friday 23 March
