Shibori and Sun Dyeing

Shibori is a Japanese dyeing technique that is great fun and produces the most beautiful results, with powerful indigo tones. Sun dyeing uses photsensitive dyes and uses the sun to fix the colour in place allowing for simple printing and relief dyeing. In this workshop we'll use both techniques to decorate your very own T-shirt, apron or bag to take away.
