Rust and indigo make great bedfellows and Jule is known in the studio as ‘The Queen of Rust’ and she uses rust and indigo dyed cloth in many of her projects as a Textile Artist.
In the morning, Jule will explain the processes involved, demonstrate which fabrics give the best results and cover the basic equipment and materials needed to rust dye cloth.
After lunch, attention will turn to Shibori a Japanese manual ‘resist’ dyeing technique for fabric. Using rust dyed cloth Jule will teach a variety of ways to bind, stitch, fold, twist, or compress cloth for Shibori. Each sample created will be dyed in a bath of indigo dye.
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners or those with some experience who wish to extend their knowledge of the processes and all basic materials are included in the workshop price.
