Through this 2-day workshop, participants will explore, Arimatsu Shibori; the traditional Japanese resist dyeing technique. Stitching, pleating, binding and pole wrapping are some of the techniques covered. All materials provided; everyone will receive a selection of cellulose fibres: cotton, rayon, hemp and linen. Together we will work with an easy to use, synthetic indigo vat while we discuss indigo’s long, rich history and different recipes for both natural and synthetic vats.
