In this 3-hour live online workshop, you will gain some knowledge and process of textile dyeing with natural materials. You will understand the difference between “cellulose” and “protein” fibres, and how they take on the dyes. There will be an introduction to Shibori, the Japanese art of manipulating fabric to create patterns through the dye process. You will be guided to dye a scarf or tote bag using shibori or dip-dye technique. This hands-on process will provide you an understanding why our reconnection to nature is imperative to our consumer choices, and in particular, clothing.
