The ancient craft of shibori takes its name from the Japanese verb ‘Shiboru’ meaning to wring, squeeze or press. Fabric is folded, pleated, cramped, wrapped, tied or stitched then traditionally dyed in indigo to create patterns on the cloth.
In this three hour workshop, you will learn the basic techniques of this magical process from setting up an indigo vat, preparing the cloth to dyeing up your own unique scarf and napery.
Indigo dyeing is messy so please wear clothing and shoes that are not precious. An apron is also recommended.
This is our first ‘Girls in the studio’ workshop in business hours and we are mindful that childcare may be a consideration for some. Our lovely neighbours, Bimbamboom have a full school holiday program scheduled for this day and will happily educate and upskill your 4-12 year olds at the same time. Further information is on Bimbamboom’s website HERE.

The combination of buff raku clay, various tools and your very own hands can result in a variety of beautiful ceramic wares which can be used as functional items or pieces of whimsy.
This class is led by Sarah Cattoni and Kim Murray who are both practising artists and art teachers (at a Brisbane GPS school). Through their profession, they have experienced a wide variety of media and techniques, but the organic and hands-on nature of working with clay is what attracts them most to a ceramics practice.
In this three hour introductory workshop, Sarah + Kim will take you through some simple pottery hand building techniques to create cups, bowls or other simple vessels. The creation of pinch pots employs simple techniques that can achieve varying outcomes through a fun and rewarding process.
All tools, clay and materials for decorating and firing are included in the class price, along with coffee, tea and light refreshments.
Following the workshop, all pieces will be dried, fired and glazed by Sarah + Kim. Pieces will be available for collection in store at Onegirlstudio once firing is complete. Please allow approximately 4 weeks for this process.
