Shibori is the Japanese word for resist dyeing of fabric. Working with a variety of techniques, you will create exciting textured and patterned fabrics, using stitch, tying, clamping, pleating and wrapping methods, before dyeing with traditional blue dyes (indigo or woad), or Procion dyes to achieve other colours or over-dye effects. Each piece of fabric (or paper) will be unique, with time to explore your own ideas for your own textile-based art work.
