Gillian Thomas will be leading this session which will be held at her home.

Shibori dyeing is the Japanese art of dyeing with indigo. It is a resist dyeing technique which produces patterns on fabric.  Attendees will be able to dye different fabrics using the techniques of stitching, clamping and wrapping to create the resist.

Gillian will set up an indigo bath using synthetic indigo.  Once the fabric dyeing is completed the bath can be exhausted by dyeing extra pieces of fabric or skeins of yarn so that the remaining liquid is safe to dispose of.

Please go to the Documents section in the Members’ Area of the website to read the full list of instructions for the workshop, what you need to supply yourself in terms of materials, equipment and lunch and directions to Gillian’s home.
