Bengala Mud Dye & Itajime Shibori Workshop

bengala workshop 2019.jpg


Bengala is one of the oldest natural dye techniques. This ancient method has received a lot of attention from urban dyers as an eco-friendly textile dye, because it is made of sustainable minerals from the soil.
In this workshop, learn the beautiful Bengala fabric dyeing method and create two pillowcases and one tenugui cloth within two hours! Also, the instructor will teach you how to make various Japanese itajime-shibori (wood plate color resisting) techniques. Freely improvise the patterns with 12 colors of Bengala dye and Aijo-indigo blue.
No toxic chemicals, no heat involved. You will create truly one-of-a-kind sleep goods which are gentle on your skin in earthy soft colors and will bring you good sleep and comfort.
