Shibori with indigo − learn how to set up your own dye vat at home

29/09/2018 10:00 am 12 people limit Open Lab 1800 SEK

Have you tried shibori before and want to get into it a bit further? In this workshop you will try arashi shibori (pole-wrapping), honeycomb shibori (using string) and itajime (folding and blocks) shibori. You´ll be guided by Linnea Blomgren who is a textile artist working with natural dyeing with indigo. In this workshop we´ll be making our own dye vat do get to know the process and then dyeing silk fabric enough to make a scarf or two.

Shibori is a Japanese dyeing technique that typically involves folding, twisting or bunching cloth and binding it, then dyeing. We´ll be using natural indigo which comes in many forms. We use natural indigo dye powder from Indian Indigo fera tinctoria and a sustainable 1-2-3 vat method.

You don’t want to miss out on this event. We guarantee that you will create beautiful items to be proud of.
