The workshop starts with an introduction to indigo and the art of shibori talking about the history and uses across the world. Participants are then given pieces of antique fabric to choose from to start tying, folding, clamping and stitching to create the shibori designs. We usually then have a little break for refreshments and questions and then start actually working with the indigo vat. The workshop continues with participants working on different shibori techniques then dying them in the indigo vat. We then untie the shibori bundles to reveal what has been created and in the final part of the workshop participants then choose their favourite design based on their practice pieces and go ahead to create a finished piece, which can be purchased from me. (Tablecloth, runner, napkins, etc) Alternatively work can continue with further practice pieces. At the end of the workshop their finished piece will be ready to take away with them together with all the practice pieces they have made. Workshops last about four hours and all materials and refreshments are included. We work in a friendly, relaxed way and welcome all levels of experience (or lack of!).

El teu amfitrió
I am an antique dealer specialising in French household linens - beautiful rustic hemp, weight country linen, fine floaty chateau pieces all with so much character. I take these antique textiles and dye them using indigo and the traditional Japanese art of shibori to create unique decorative textiles that I incorporate into my range of homeware, clothing and accessories. I love to share my passion for antique textiles and the magic of indigo and I run workshops in my garden studio in a small village just outside Guildford in Surrey, south of England.
The workshop takes place in the garden studio at my home which is in a small village just outside Guildford, south of England.
