Shibori – The Art of Japanese Tie and Dye (Textile Crafts)

Shibori is a traditional Japanese fabric dyeing technique that produces patterns on textiles. The patterns produced are all hand-crafted.

Enjoy the art of doing it yourself at the Shibori Workshop.
The intent of this workshop is not only to introduce people to the inventive Japanese textile art of shibori, but also to go handmade.

The participants will explore many traditional techniques of Shibori including Kanuko/ Itajime/ Kumo/ Arashi, in a hands on method.

The artist-trainer will provide step-by-step guidance so that each of you is a proud owner of beautiful handcrafted patters on fabric.

In a consumerist culture that we are in currently, it would be nice for people to question their consumption behaviour. To sow seeds about slow consumption, slow textiles and slow fashion.

We are conscious of the material that goes into our workshop.
Our organic cotton fabric is locally sourced and we use Azo free chemical colours.

Participants get to take away 4 fabric swatches done with the technique

Day & Date: Sunday, 1st July
Time: 3pm -6pm

Reverse Dyeing & Discharge Printing – Beginner workshop in Bangalore

Discharge printing is an art through which one can reverse the previously dyed colour of fabric/paper.

In the 19th century, chemical dyes were introduced that revolutionized the textile industry. Because clothes were so expensive to buy new during the Victorian era, dyeing was a way of rejuvenating old and worn clothing. It was especially useful when dark stains could not be removed from clothes that were still wearable. Cleaning and dyeing processes were usually carried out on the same premises. This is when reverse dying & printing started gaining popularity. In more recent times, a similar concept is used in Discharge Printing.

The concept of discharge printing, when clubbed along with other craft techniques such as stenciling, stamping, spraying & more, can help in making fun & interesting art projects.

At this workshop, participants will learn to:

1)Make prints on paper & fabric
2)Spray technique
3)Stenciling technique
4)DIY discharge paste
5)Dying technique
6)Discharge using block printing technique
7)Discharge using screen printing technique
