About

Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) invites you into MAMA Studio to learn the traditional Japanese dyeing techniques of Shibori. Shibori originated in Japan, as early as the Eighth Century. The distinctive Shibori patterns are created using a sequence of folding, binding and clamping of fabric into bundles that are dip-dyed in traditional indigo dye. This workshop will familiarise you with the core techniques and materials used in Shibori so that you can begin to understand the possibilities that this medium can yield. Students will create five sample squares using different folding and dyeing techniques, before completing a major project on a two metre length of fabric. This beginner course is split over two days, to allow time for learning and creating on the Saturday, before revealing and finishing on the Sunday. Tutor Jinni Oupatham is a Thai-trained artist and designer. Jinni brings a wealth of experience with South-East Asian mediums, styles and designs. She is also an amazing cook and generously provides a cooked meal for all her workshop participants! The course has been developed for adult learners, however, teens that are able to participate independently would be welcome to join the class. Entry Cost Adult $150 - Includes all materials, and a cooked Thai lunch on Saturday. Member $135 - Includes all materials, and a cooked Thai lunch on Saturday.
