Shibori tie-dye t-shirt
Adult supervision essential.
This kit and tutorial has been put together for us by our textiles teacher Maia. Shibori is a resist dyeing technique from Japan. Fabric is folded, tied or clamped and then dyed - these ties and folds stop the dye reaching the fabric and make a pattern. Shibori traditionally uses blue indigo dye which is why we’ve chosen it for our kit.
Included for you is:
- Protective gloves
- Elastic bands
- Scraps of fabric to practice with
- A plain white 100% cotton t-shirt
- Lots of ideas and hints and tips
