Under Annabel’s expert guidance, you will be introduced to the many techniques available and then guided and helped to achieve your projects and ideas.
Inspiration & Guidance
The course is based in a lovely building on the River Tamar in Cornwall. We will visit the exciting Eden Project nearby to inspire you in your designs and creations. Using camera or sketch book to collect images and ideas for your work.
We will be using both indigo and fibre reactive dyes during the week so a chance to create shibori in golds, oranges, greens or whatever colours you chose. You will learn how to dye with fibre reactive dyes mixing the colours and adding the chemicals required to make permanent glowing colours.
