Neha Puri Dhir: Shibori – a Celebration of Creativity and Tradition 3rd-4th April 2019

$280.00 $240.00

Shibori- the ancient Japanese technique of resist dyeing on fabric, is not just an art but is a fascinating story in itself. Shibori is a platform where you challenge your creativity to unravel a bold interplay of colours and textures. It involves different types of folding, stitching, twisting and compressing of fabric followed by multiple levels of dyeing to unfold alluring patterns on the fabric.
The explorative workshop by Neha Puri Dhir, a textile artist from India, will involve learning and working on two different resist dyeing techniques such as stitch resist and clamp resist. The workshop will leave you with endless creative possibilities to explore further.
The workshop is recommended for all age groups. No prior knowledge of fabric and dyes is needed, just come wearing a set of clothes you can get dirty and bring your creativity along. Any basic knowledge of stitching will come in handy. The artist has a vast experience of conducting workshops at varied levels; from skilled traditional craftsmen to young students with no prior experience.
