Indigo Workshops with International Master

Bryan Whitehead is a master of stenciling with rice paste and indigo, from Fujino, a vertical mountain village just outside of Tokyo.

He is conducting two 2-day workshops in Brisbane, in July, at the Lavalla Center, 58 Fernberg Rd, Paddington, 4064

  • Weekend workshop: 22nd – 23rd July, 2017
  • Mid-week workshop: 24th – 25th July, 2017

Workshop Description: “Indigo” with Bryan Whitehead

Size: fabric for a quilt approx. 210cm x 210cm (82″ x 82″) will be dyed.

This wonderful class will begin with an introduction to the stencil history of Japan, with many samples of old stencils and antique indigo dyed pieces being shown and discussed.  The process to cut masks in different shapes to make interesting blocks for quilts will be explained and then you will make masks and apply them to your fabric. Indigo vats will be set up during which Bryan will explain the background to making an indigo vat.  Your pasted stencil cloth will be dyed and the patterns revealed when the paste is removed.  You will also dye different shades of solid blue, to use in your quilt designs.  Ideas of how to use your cloth designs in a quilt will be exchanged.  This class is suitable for all skill levels.

Both Workshops are now full!
