Shibori and Tie Dye
The first activity we start with is Shibori /Tie & Dye where participants are taught about the basics of Shibori and given a first-hand experience of tie and dye. Our master artisans will take requests from the participants and will also show you how a particular design can be tied to a fabric. All participants get to tie their fabrics or garments with thread in various patterns. This is pre-preparation for the natural dyeing segment as post-tying, dyeing will be done. Our trained artisans will be available throughout the segment to help each and every individual participant with the art form.
Standard Indian Lunch is served
We will set up dye baths of various natural colours to choose from and demonstrate how each colour reacts to pH differently, how every fabric has unique properties to hold colour etc. Everybody dyes their shibori-tied clothes in the earlier session and plays around with combinations of colours. Participants are allowed to bring in as many fabrics, and garments of their own as they want and can dye all of them in this session. This is the most interesting part of the workshop as you get to see the fruits of all the labour.
Block printing is one art that every tourist to Jaipur looks forward to. At DIY, every participant gets to try their hands on block printing. A master session is given by our artisan to the participants during which they explain the intricacies related to block printing. Participants get to choose from a variety of blocks and print on the fabrics or garments during the workshop
