Indigo Shibori Dyeing Workshop
Jervis Bay Maritime Museum
Huskisson NSW 2540
14th October 2019
10:00am to 12:00pm
Bring gorgeous blues to life with this unique indigo shibori dyeing experience with local renowned textile artist Helena Geiger.
Shibori is the Japanese word for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dyeing. The word comes from the verb root shiboru, 'to wring, squeeze, press'.
In this two-hour workshop, Helena will start by introducing Indigo Shibori Dyeing, the technique, tips and tricks on how to replicate this craft at home. Helena will also demonstrate different methods and what can be achieved - all while the vat is getting ready. This will give everyone time and inspiration for the pieces they will want to make. You will then move on to practising what you have just learnt!
You will get three 50 centimetre square white cotton pieces of fabric to try out different techniques (including clamping, using elastic bands, tracing shapes). These pieces can then be framed or used for quilting for example or even to make cushion covers.
You will then also get to choose between dyeing a calico bag or a muslin scarf to have another go!
