Join Kerrie for one of Cowper Art Gallery and Studio's most popular workshops. Indigo has been used as a dye substance for centuries and traditional ways of using it are still practiced around the world. Shibori is the technique of folding, wrapping and tying to create beautiful designs in dyed fabrics and other materials. In this workshop you will learn a little about the history of indigo and shibori, as well as gaining experience using this beautiful dye. Students will begin the day by experimenting with various ways of creating pattern on cloth and then go on to make a beautiful silk scarf ready to take home and wear at the end of the day. All materials, including a silk or cotton scarf, and equipment for the workshop are included in the price. Just bring your sense of adventure and readiness to learn. This workshop is suitable for Beginners and for those with some experience. Entry Cost All tickets $140
