Awash with Ideas: exploring Shibori techniques to create stunning fabric designs


by The Cass



A day of textile design street workshop exploring the traditional techniques of Shibori at The Cass, London Metropolitan University.

Join us for an open Street Workshop event on Wednesday 20 September 2017 as part of the Making Matters series, organised in conjunction with the London Design Festival.

Awash with Ideas is an event where we will explore dyeing linen with natural dyes using Shibori techniques.

This is a celebratory event, establishing The Cass Design School in our new building in Old Castle street showcasing our passion for making. Participants will be able to create their own Shibori patterns which will be exhibited and publicized at The Cass.

The day will be split into four 90 minute-long sessions.

Design work from this year's Summer Show will also be on display, which will be a great opportunity for visitors to see the work we do at The Cass.

Participants should wear clothing appropriate to art and design activities, and we will provide plastic aprons and hypoallergenic gloves.
