Stitched Shibori and Indigo dyeing - 22nd March 2024 
RHS Harlow Carr, Harrogate

Shibori is a Japanese resist dyeing technique which produces unique patterns on fabric. This introduction to Shibori Nui uses running stitch alongside the pleating and folding techniques of this practice, allowing greater control and variation of the patterns.

​The morning will be spent stitching patterns into the fabric and the afternoon dyeing. This is a slow process but a rewarding one. You will leave the workshop with a unique design stitched into fabric and with new knowledge of the methods of Shibori which you can incorporate into any future projects. 

​I recommend wearing wear old clothings (incase of splashing), please bring an apron, rubber gloves and a plastic bag or container to take away wet indigo pieces. If you have any small sharp scissors please also bring them along.

10.00am to 4.00pm.

Tea/Coffee are provided but please bring a lunch with you.

Booking TBA




Botanical Printing with Slow Stitching - 30th August 2024
RHS Harlow Carr, Harrogate

eco workshop.jpg

Introduction to eco printing using leaves. You will be guided through the process of nature-based printing by demonstrating the mordanting and steaming involved of the fabric and paper. The process is unpredictable and results in a subtle colour palette suggestive of alchemy and traditional fabric staining. You will experiment wrapping leaf collections into bundles, producing a series of samples. You will also look at slow stitching and piecing fabrics together.

I will supply the leaves and flowers required for the workshop.

This workshop is suitable for those with no prior knowledge of textiles or dyeing techniques. 


Please note: Clothing is at risk of staining so please dress appropriately in an apron, bring rubber gloves and also a plastic bag to take away wet items.  

This workshop takes place at RHS Harlow Carr, Harrogate
