Shibori Workshop

Shibori Workshop
15 February 6:30 p.m.

In this beautifully crafted workshop discover the exquisite art of Shibori, a traditional Japanese resist dyeing technique. Following traditional practices and recipes, you will create a beautiful clothe just like a true Japanese craftsman.

Shibori is a Japanese manual resist dyeing technique used on textiles to creates patterns that spread unevenly across the fabric. The resulting patterns are often emblematic of Japan's appreciation of the beauty of imperfection – known locally as wabi sabi – and are prized for their individuality and arresting beauty.

About the artists: Shibori, established in 2005 by Karen Davis and Pepa Martin is a Sydney based dye studio specialising in art based textiles and using fabric manipulation to explore creativity.
