Summer School 2019.
Shibori: Shaped Resist Dyeing with Susanne Williamson.

Shibori is an inventive art, originating in Japan and involving patterns created on fabrics using folding, stitching and pole wrapping. This workshop is an exploration of Shibori vat dyeing techniques using cotton dyes and the bleach back shadow technique. Participants will practice with fabric samples, culminating with making a scarf and apron. Suitable for absolute beginners and those wishing to build on previous fabric and textile experience.

About Susanne:
For over 30 years, Susanne has been perfecting the art of capturing colour on fabric. Her study of Shibori has involved overseas workshops, extensive work in perfecting the basics, and creating new ways to extend her practice. Since 1995, Susanne has successfully entered 12 garments in the Wearable Arts Awards, winning some major prizes, including Winner of the Open Section (2003) for Tiers Of Peace where Arashi Shibori was used as a sculptural form.
