Workshop 1 – 27-28 March 2014
In this workshop we will be exploring and refining shibori techniques of stitch, arashi and binding, alone and in combination. Three indigo vats (weak, medium, strong) will be made up and attention will be given to reserving and selective dyeing procedures. Cost $ 250
Workshop 2 – 29-30 March 2014
This is an advanced shibori workshop and requires a prior knowledge of shibori techniques.
