Shibori Dyeing with Indigo

Bloesem Class Recap | Shibori Dyeing with Arounna of Bookhou

The last week of August was dedicated to shibori dyeing with Arounna from Bookhou. Arounna and John reside in Canada but were here for a week's stay along with 5 classes – 3 shibori classes and 2 other water coloring classes. 

The artistic couple took this chance to explore Singapore and do abit of painting too. We loved following their journey on Arounna's instagram account. They painted in the park and noticed all kinds of beautiful flora and fauna which we might have taken for granted. 

Anyway, back to the shibori class.. it went swimmingly! With the shibori print being one of the hottest trends on the market (we've been seeing alot of it online for awhile now), it was fun seeing the students explore different techniques and coming up with different patterns. Arounna brought along some samples she had created previously for reference which really helped inspire everyone.

We also learned that the indigo dye is really powerful. Everyone left looking very contented but also looking abit dead with their blue finger tips! At least everyone had a great time!

Prepping their patterns by using marbles, rubber bands and ice cream sticks.. just some of the options.

Post-dyeing: The most satisfying part of the entire process – cutting away the rubber bands and revealing the pattern!
