Nui (Stitch Resist) and Indigo Workshop
Learn old hand sewing techniques, the making of a natural indigo vat and the dyeing process.
The unique effects possible with nui shibori are determined by the type of stitch, whether or not the cloth is folded, and the arrangement of the stitches-straight, curved, parallel, or area enclosing. After the stitching of a piece is completed, the cloth is drawn into tight gathers, along the stitched thread(s), and secured by knotting. It is then dyed. The cloth within the gathers is largely protected from the dye.
The workshop will last 4.5 hours (1pm to 530pm) between the sewing process,View more
