Shibori Dyeing Workshop
Learn the ancient Japanese art of Shibori dyeing. Manipulate fabrics with tiles, clamps and an array of folding, stitching and tying techniques to achieve unique aesthetics. Be amazed as indigo vat dyed pieces oxidise before your eyes and turn from green to blue, as we apply a natural indigo dye.
Screen Printing Workshop
Learn how to screen-print your own designs (or a studio design) from exposing screens with photo emulsion and a light box to printing then stripping the screens. Screen printing allows you to replicate a visual design across surfaces (e.g. fabric). Plenty of room for experimentation.
