The Friends of the Ipswich Art Gallery invite you to join them in a hands-on workshop to create your own Shibori-inspired Tie-dyed calico tote bag. Suitable for beginners.

Shibori is a traditional Japanese dyeing technique. The word comes from the verb root shiboru, which means “to wring, squeeze, press”. The unique patterns are created through a combination of folding, twisting and binding fabric before dip-dying.

The workshop will be facilitated by textile artist, educator and crafter Kate Jefferay through her business My Aunty Anna. Kate is passionate about creating community through craft and runs various workshops, patiently providing instruction to people of all abilities.

All Materials are provided including the calico tote bag as well as light refreshments for morning tea.

Maximum 20 participants.

Dates: Saturday 10 November 2018
Times: 10.30am-1pm
Cost: Friends members $55 | General admission $65
Age Group: Recommended for 16+ years

Note: This workshop can get a little messy. Each participant will be given a disposable apron, however we recommend participants wear old clothing.
