Guntai and Makiage Shibori with Indigo with Rob Jones
A MASK OR FACE COVERING IS REQUIRED IN THE SHOP INCLUDING DURING CLASSES.
Guntai and makiage shibori are two traditional shibori techniques that combine stitching and binding together. Guntai was also known as military shibori, because it was often used in regimented patterns to decorate Samurai clothing. Makiage patterns are characterised by crisp outlines with a bound centre. Both techniques offer a wide range of design possibilities, especially when the patterns are repeated. In this class you will be taught how to do each technique and dye your work in indigo!
About your teacher: London-based Romor Designs was formed in the autumn of 2015 by Rob Jones, a shibori textiles designer and natural dyer. Having discovered Shibori, the ancient Japanese art of resist dyeing, at West Dean college, Rob went on to study in Japan under indigo guru, Bryan Whitehead. Rob's passion is in finding the new in the old, building on the tradition and centuries of skill that shibori has behind it. He believes in taking work in new directions by combining techniques and inventing his own forms.
