Learn to Shibori stitch and dye your own scarf to take home, along with a tote bag and a small scarf bag

Join Fran Reilly, Textile Artist and Dr. Mary Harlow, Textile Historian for a one day Shibori workshop, which includes a brief history of this traditional Japanese art form and the practical art of creating resist patterns on fabric. Stitch your own design into a fine wool scarf, an organic cotton tote bag and a small cotton scarf bag and prepare to dye them all in an Indigo vat.  (Alternative methods for creating patterns will also be taught for those less confident with stitching).

Workshop includes:
All materials: scarf, bags, fabric, needle & thread
Tea, coffee & cakes available throughout the day (bring packed lunch)
Small intimate group size (maximum 10 participants) 
Two experienced and passionate tutors with plenty of tips and tricks to share!

"I would highly recommend the workshop to anyone interested in textiles as the results are achievable, unique and wonderfully wearable."

"A great worksh​op.  A lovely creative day and 'the reveal' the next day is so exciting!  Highly recommended."

"I absolutely loved being in the workshop session and it was very clear from the start that both of you know a lot about the topic that you were delivering and at the same time were so willing to share your knowledge."

"Unwrapping my creations this morning.
I am really really thrilled with my results and particularly the scarf!"

"I just wanted to say what a great day I had yesterday. You were both such warm hosts. I am a real beginner but I felt very relaxed and at ease.  The format was great. The food was lovely.
