For years I’ve been fascinated by the indigo dyes of Japan and the designs of Shibori. It truly is an art form and their inky seductiveness is too good to resist.
I’ve also seen plenty of DIY/online type tutorials that look amazing and some sewists have had some absolutely fabulous results with their own efforts. So all of this got me hunting for a way to learn more about how to create these looks.
A late night trawl through Instagram led me to Shibori a Sydney based workshop that not only sells breathtaking pieces but also conducts workshops. A few emails later and they agreed to put on a special beginners workshop that we can fill with sewists.
Numbers are very limited so if you’d like to come along let me know as soon as you can and we will make arrangements for the class fee.
