Blue Magic: Indigo Dye and Shibori

Deborah Manson
£40 – £50

Suitable for all levels including beginners.

Join textile artist Deborah Manson to learn how to make beautiful natural blues and patterns on cloth using indigo dye and and Shibori: Japanese folding and tying resist dye techniques. This one-day workshop will give you an opportunity to experiment with the magic of indigo and create a series of samples and your own individual Shibori textile bag.
Bring along some lightly coloured cloth to dye, or something you’d like to transform like a garment or homeware. Indigo works best on natural fabrics such as linen, cotton, wool and silk.

*Please note this course is suitable for children over 8yrs old with an accompanying parent/carer who has bought their own ticket. Children over 14 years old may attend unaccompanied, at full price. Parent/carers must attend the start of the session to register their child and supply an emergency contact number.

Red & White Rooms

All materials will be provided but you must bring a selection of lightly coloured fabrics, 100% cotton, linen, silk or wool.

PLEASE NOTE : COTTON / LINEN FABRICS MUST BE PREWASHED AT A HIGH TEMERATURE, SILK, WOOL MUST ALSO BE PREWASHED.

Please also bring a pair of rubber gloves.

Deborah is an artist and maker based in East Sussex. Her practice is studio based and incorporates collage, drawing, print and textiles – including growing and processing her own natural dyes. Her aesthetic – lo-fi, handmade, imperfect, incorporating inexpensive paper, re purposed textiles and natural dye – evolves from her interest in age old craft techniques and the cross overs between art and craft. Her work is informed by the belief that artists have a responsibility to make conscious decisions about materials, approaches to making and their impact on the environment. Deborah studied Visual Communication at Central at Central St Martins and went on to work as a designer and teacher. In 2016 she gained her MA in textiles from Chelsea college of art.
