Workshop: Japanese Tie and Dye (Shibori)

MAY 07, 2017      11:00 am - 02:00 pm

This summer learn the art of Japanese tie and dye and create your own unique designs and style! Shibori is the Japanese term for tie-dye techniques that are a part of the various resist-dyeing techniques found in different forms across many cultures.

The process of tie-dye typically consists of folding, twisting, pleating or crumpling a garment and binding with string or rubber bands, followed by application of dyes. Shibori teaches you to see cloth as a 3-dimensional object, and visualize intricate designs that are brought to life with dyes.

Conducted in collaboration with Iteeha

Age Group: Open for all over 6 years of age. Individuals and family groups can register.

Charges: Rs 500 per head inclusive of the materials and Museum entry ticket.
