I first discovered Hiroyuki Shindo’s work about 2 years ago. I can’t quite remember what led me to his work, but i was immediately taken with it. His art is very different to traditional “Arimatsu” shibori, and it is awe inspiring. If you google image search his name you will find so much to love […]
Ever since i first discovered shibori, I’ve wanted to visit Japan and more specifically, visit Arimatsu on the weekend they hold their annual Shibori Festival. This year my dream came true.
This post is a bit late to the party, for which I apologise. It’s always busy busy busy around here, and blogging really ends up taking a back seat to the rest of my work. In the back of my mind while I’m dyeing I’m writing blog posts about new discoveries, new things, new ideas […]

Indigo is the natural dye I have worked with most, and challenges me more than any other. You could spend your life working with it, and still learn something new every day. Indigo dyed textiles always seems to be alive. It’s a colour that changes with the light, and on sunny days will be bright […]
