We will use Shibori stitching and Arashi Shibori techniques to make 3-dimensional forms that can be fashioned into sculptural jewellery wearables – earrings, neckpieces, arm cuffs and brooches – over this 3 day workshop. Silk organza, naturally dyed using Madder, Pomegranate, Brazilwood, Logwood and Iron Rust, will produce vibrant and striking colours for your jewellery pieces. There is also the option for further embellishment with seed beads or other beads of your choice. By the end of this workshop you can expect to have completed a number of jewellery pieces that will complement any wardrobe and will be the envy of your friends!!

Suitable for the complete novice through to those with experience of Shibori and natural dyes.
