Online interactive classes
Shibori Stream online classes are for groups of participants via Zoom. Level 1 and Level 2 courses are for 6 weeks. One or two free shibori social sessions are offered at the end of each course to resolve any problems and for participants to keep in touch.
Each session is 2 hours with a 15 minute break. Many techniques will be covered as in a real life workshop but teaching methods will of course be different. The first class includes a short introduction and we’ll go on to discuss fabric choices and shibori thread.
First on the agenda will be stitching on a single layer of fabric to discover many options for creating pattern and design. In further classes we’ll progress into dealing with folds, the different ways of making shapes, exploring light and shade, different stitches and making indigo vats which can be managed easily at home.
