Masterclass: The Shibori Blues

4-Day workshop with Jane Callender (UK)

In this masterclass Jane will steer you through the practicalities of shibori to create resists on natural fibre fabric in the way of samples and small pieces. With attention to detail the complexities of stitch resist are shown; shaped resists, pattern and texture will all be explored with time given to simple geometry and pattern planning. Bolder approaches will also be considered for the art textile piece. Stitch will be used in isolation and in combination with other shibori techniques such as itajime, cylinder wrapping, binding and reserving methods which can also be worked independently. 

Using different indigo vats for an authentic dyeing experience the exceptional capabilities of this dye will be truly appreciated and a selection of additional dyes will be available, both natural and fibre reactive.

With group and one to one tuition and initially learning from demonstrations prior to refining techniques, a time of personal observation, interpretation and study brings the course to a close. You will have experienced the extraordinary and multifaceted art form that is simply ‘shibori’.
