TIN CAN STUDIO – Shibori-inspired Indigo Dyeing

Tin Can Studio is a creative studio and mobile project space run by multidisciplinary artists Caroline Ballhorn and Jenny Lee Craig. Together they design and facilitate interactive projects that hope to spark public imagination and create opportunities for meaningful collaboration while making art. They have worked with a variety of institutions, communities and organizations all over the Lower Mainland to create unique projects, activations and programs that centre on creative community building.

Tin Can Studio is excited to be back at this year’s Campbell Bay Music Festival hosting a Shibori-inspired Indigo dyeing workshop. Come and explore the magic of Indigo, a natural dye used for centuries around the world to create the distinctive blue you probably know from blue jeans or denim. In this workshop we will explore techniques derived from the ancient Japanese resist-dying technique called Shibori, which produces amazing patterned results from pale to deep blue.
For a $25 material fee participants will be provided with an ample 2 metres of high quality organic cotton to work with, perfect for creating your own beach towel, wrap and more!

• Space is limited so make sure to pre-register to avoid disappointment!

• Participants are welcome to bring one or two personal items with which to experiment. Please ensure the piece is clean, and made of 100% natural fibres (cotton or silk). If you’re unsure please get in touch!

Two workshops available on Saturday June 24th!
MORNING 10:30am – 1pm
AFTERNOON 2pm – 4:30pm
