Kids shibori classes range from 90 minutes to a full two and a half hours dependng on the age and number of kids involved.

In either class kids get an introduction to shibori (with some tie dye elements). These binding techniques are a few of the main methods of compressing cloth using binding thread to make a variety of patterns.

Techniques covered:

How to tie a kamosage knot (essential for all Shibori binding projects)
How to make the following:
   - Kanoko (fawn) dots
   - Bai (shell)
   - Ne maki (bird bound beads)
   - Kumo (spiderweb) and
   - Tesuji (stripes)

We will make a few sample pieces using these techniques.

NOTE: We will be dyeing using non-toxic coloured Dylon dyes. It is advisable to wear old clothes or bring an apron to protect your clothes.

NOTE: Tutor has up-to-date DRB approval. Certificate can be viewed on request.
