Japanese Shibori Tie-Dyeing with local, seasonal natural plant dyes: BYO Textiles

  • Hamilton House 80 Stokes Croft Bristol, BS1 3QY United Kingdom (map)

Learn the traditional Japanese technique of Shibori fold + clamp resist tie-dyeing, using reclaimed wooden blocks to create exquisite repeat patterns. A variety of local plant dyes will be available to use, made from foraged wild-plants, organic produce and food waste, as part of a non-toxic, natural dye practice.

A great opportunity to experiment with natural dyeing, using your own selection of fabric samples, small items of clothing or other creative projects.
