Ruth Crothers Workshop
Shibori Dyeing CANCELLED

Sunday May 5th 2019 CANCELLED

We have, unfortunately, had to cancel this workshop through lack of interest.

Ruth Crothers is a  Masters student at the Ulster Art College. She works primarily in textile screen printing with an abstract  and illustrative style.  Her work can be seen on her Instagram account @ruth_prints.  At her workshop, she will be demonstrating Shibori stitching and indigo dyeing.

For the Shibori/indigo dyeing workshop, Ruth will be using a range of interesting objects and materials to clamp/ bind the fabrics and create unique patterns.  At the workshop you will also work on one longer stitched shibori project.  Ruth plans to have two dye baths on the go at once; she will bring items from the university collection to create the patterns.  Ruth is planning on indigo dyeing some tote bags as well  and she will bring a selection of fabrics with her.

Cost:  Members £20; non members £30.

Plus £10 per head for materials
