Welcome to the wonderful world of Shibori, a Japanese resist dye technique. During this 1- day workshop you will learn a variety of Shibori techniques, preparing and dyeing samples in both Indigo and procion mx dyes. The workshop will take place in our beautiful and historic Tudor kitchen. 

You will learn how to fold and clamp fabric to produce shapes and patterns; bind in various ways to create organic marks and stitch to create beautiful, intricate and delicate designs.

You will leave with notes and samples, a scarf and fabric with which to create a cushion or piece of art.

 " I would highly recommend this workshop, you don’t need to worry if you have not done it before as Kathryn will take you through the whole process. A great way to switch off and just be in the moment, creating and experimenting with colour and design.”

"Kathryn is a natural teacher who is full of positive energy. It was a real treat to learn and explore textiles with and alongside Kathryn."

“A wonderful creative day with lovely people. It was great for one not so imaginative to be given lots of ideas and encouragement. Thank you.”

Kathryn Green

Kathryn is a textile artist and tutor, specialising in dye and print processes to create organic, layered and textural art textile pieces for exhibition, in addition to capsule collections of wearable art and interior accessories.

The landscape provides a constant and enduring inspiration to which she returns time and again. Having travelled extensively over the years, Kathryn enjoys drawing on the cultures, patterns, textures and colours of these remarkable places. Joy and inspiration can also be found in old objects and the concept of the traces that remain from previous and continuous use. She continues to develop her approach to textiles through exploration and experimentation with textile processes.

Having obtained a First-class degree in textiles, she went on to qualify as a tutor, taught in Further & Higher education for several years and now teaches regularly from her studio and various other venues.

She has exhibited at Jagged Art Gallery, London, Found Gallery, Wales, New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth, and was commissioned by Glyndebourne Opera to create a collection exclusively for them.
