“The Magic of Indigo and Introduction to Stitch Resist Shibori”

The process of dyeing with indigo is magical. Learn to stitch and manipulate fabric to resist the dye (called shibori) creating beautiful patterns on fabric.

Practice the many shibori techniques that you will have read about in books. It is so much easier to learn by doing it under the expert guidance of Annabel who uses shibori to create her beautiful hangings of plant and landscape images. An enjoyment of sewing is helpful, and the day is suitable for all levels of ability.

Create your own unique textiles using stitch resist dyeing techniques. In the day you will create some small pieces plus enough fabric for a cushion cover, bag ,scarf or hanging.

£50 to £85 per person dependent on venue or £280 a day for your group or organisation for up to 10 people.

Learn how to create stunning patterns through stitch resist and to dye with natural plant colours to make your very own scarf

During this one day workshop, you will start by becoming familiar with some different types of stitch resist and other ways of manipulating the fabric – this is the ancient Japanese art of Shibori. Annabel will be your expert guide to show you how to stitch and shape the silk fabric to resist the dye and create the desired pattern.

We then go on to colour the silk scarf with naturally derived plant dyes. You will learn the process of dyeing with plant dyes. Typically 4 different plants will be used to create a lovely palette of colours. Annabel will show you the common plants that have been used for generations.

Suitable for all and no previous experience is necessary although an enjoyment of sewing is really helpful.

One silk scarf is included in the course fee. If you require any additional scarves they would be charged at cost.

£50 to £85 per person dependent on venue or £280 a day for your group or organisation for up to 10 people.
