Guntai and makiage shibori with indigo


Guntai and makiage header page.jpg

Guntai and makiage shibori are two traditional shibori techniques that combine stitching and binding together.

Guntai was also known as military shibori, because it was often used in regimented patterns to decorate Samurai clothing.

Makiage patterns are characterised by crisp outlines with a bound centre.

Both techniques offer a wide range of design possibilities, especially when the patterns are repeated.

In this class you will be taught how to do each technique and dye your work in indigo.

The class lasts three hours.
