Indigo Shibori Workshop | 28 November 2015
Shibori is the art of folding, binding, clamping and knotting to compress fabric to create a resist. Join Tanya from Old Grey House for a three hour workshop and be inspired by this amazing indigo dye process. Learn how to prepare a dye vat and some basic Itajame and Arashi Shibori techniques. You will create and experiment on some test pieces to start with and then create either a silk/cotton scarf or linen table runner to take home. It may get a little messy but will be great fun! No experience is necessary.
The “Old Grey House” is our weatherboard cottage and my home studio in Perth, WA. My creative beginnings were formed studying Fashion and Textile Design and was followed by a career in the Fashion Industry. The move into homewares was a natural progression, combining a love of interior spaces and the experience gained working with fabrics, fashion and printing. The work created by Old Grey House has two ranges, Hand Screen Printed and Indigo Shibori.
I have rediscovered my love for Indigo dying over the last few years and just love everything about this amazing process. The colour, technique and unpredictable nature of this craft is always a joy to work with. I have also hugely enjoyed sharing this art with others though workshops and creative gatherings. Meeting like minded people and teaching this craft has also become an inspiration in itself.
2pm - 5pm | Saturday 28 Novewmber 2015
The workshops are held in our workroom at Mono. We can be found down the lane at 55 Queen Street, Busselton (behind Coco's Thai and Keshi Boutique)
