Indigo dyeing workshop: Sunday 7th October 1-5pm


Indigo dyeing workshops

Join us for one of Amanda's workshops to learn about the Japanese art of shibori tie dye. Starting at a level that is accessible to everyone we will work with indigo dye to hand dye antique French linens. We'll tie, sew and clamp the fabrics before dunking them into the indigo vat.

Amanda will introduce a variety of Japanese shibori techniques showing you samples of what can be achieved. You'll then get stuck in with folding and tying some sample pieces. You'll be surprised what you can create. All samples created can be taken home at the end of the session.

Once you're happy with the samples you've created we will move to a larger piece to make a cushion cover. Amanda will take the fabric panel that you have dyed and make it into a cushion cover which will be ready for collection from &Hobbs about 10 days after the workshop.
