The shibori and indigo trends are showing no signs of slowing down. Would you like to learn how to dye your own fabric using the shibori technique from masters of the craft? If you’re in Sydney, or you can get yourself here, then you’re in luck! To celebrate the launch of We Are Scout, Pepa Martin and Karen Davis of Shibori are giving away one place in one of their upcoming workshops, worth $150.
Pepa and Karen’s hand dyed fabrics and leather have been used by some of Australia’s top fashion and interior designers. They’ve collaborated on some unique projects including a full scale dip dyed hot air balloon, fabric inlayed surf boards made by McTavish and Sibella Court, as well as a home wares range with Lee Mathews and a collection with Fleur Wood.
Shibori‘s workshops are a lovely and fun social event where you’ll enjoy the process of shibori, expand your textile knowledge and take home the skills to colour your life indigo. Karen and Pepa are both gorgeous women who are passionate about what they do and they love to open their studio doors in Sydney’s Stanmore and share their knowledge. They are renowned for pushing the boundaries of this ancient Japanese craft by exploring and modernising old techniques with new designs on modern fabrics.
