You'll learn how to dye fabric with Bengala using a Japanese Tsutsugaki-zome technique.

One of a Japanese traditional dye technique, Tsutsugaki dye is a color resist-dye method using a paste. In Japan it is a traditional method of using paste made with rice. We will start hand-drawing with the paste over a tenugui cloth, then color with a brush. You can dye the background of Tsutsugaki pasted cloth in the bengala color dye bath!


  • Bengala dyes and indigo dye

  • 1 pre-fixed 'tenugui' cotton cloth 30cm x 90cm
