Shibori is the Japanese dyeing technique; it’s a Japanese word for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dyeing.

This one-hour workshop is for those who love working on fabric, hand crafting, and want to learn how to make their own unique fabric. In the class we will practice one of the many Shibori techniques: Kanoko Shibori-which is a binding method. All materials are provided during the class, the only thing you need to bring is the fabric you wanna use: silk, cotton or chiffon, bring your t-shirt, dress, scarf, bandana…

Fun "express" workshop at FAD. Being surrounded by other artisans definitely inspires the DIY mood. Tata was knowledgeable and helpful, and clearly explained the process.

If I had to make suggestions, I would just add a couple minor points: For such a short session, it may have been helpful to be more specific about the size of cloth/garment to bring so we're not too rushed. Also, there was a lot of interest in seeing the possibilities for bigger projects, so maybe bringing some samples in various stages of completion to show would be interesting.
