HOSTED BY BLACKHORSE LANE ATELIERS

2-Part Indigo Dyeing Workshop: Intermediate Level. Hosted by Blackhorse Lane Ateliers, Led by Indigo.Works.

Purchase tickets for April 5 & 12 Intermediate Workshop

This is a two-part workshop on Thursday 5th and Thursday 12th of April from 18:30 – 20:30.

This workshop is aimed at those who have attended a beginners Shibori workshop and are ready to learn some advanced techniques.

Workshop description:

  • This workshop will be split into two evenings. On the first we will focus on stitching, you will learn some more advanced techniques focusing on Katano Shibori technique and Mokume. At the end of the first session you will have learnt the basics of these techniques and will leave with fabric and some homework for the next week.
  • On week two you will dye the fabric you’ve spent the last week stitching up.

Katano: Comes from master Craftsman Motohiko Katano who spent a lifetime reviving traditional shibori in his hometown Nagoya. “katano shibori,” produces a repeating pattern across the width of the cloth in variegated colors, white lines, and areas resembling soft airbrushed tinting.

Mokume: Means “Woodgrain” in Japanese as these densely stitched and pulled fabric reveals a woodgrain like pattern acrross the fabric.

What Experience do I need?
Ideally you will have attended a beginners Shibori workshop, but if you haven’t there will be time to catch up.

An interest in natural dyes, crafted processes and Japanese textiles a plus!

Do I need to bring anything?
All materials will be provided, but please wear messy clothes or bring an apron /spare rubber gloves if you have them.
