Ce vei face

What comes to your mind when you hear natural dye? The soft pastel colors? Need to wait for a long time to boil the plants?

This "Shin-Manyozome" dyeing method is so different from what you imagine the natural dye would be. In this workshop, you can experience both the amazing dye method and some shibori technique!

After meeting at Tanbaguchi station of JR line, we'll walk to the dye factory together. It's about 9-minute walk from the Tanbaguchi station.

At the factory, we learn about "Shin-Manyozome" method and the materials we use. What you will dye is an organic cotton scarf which is super soft and proudly made in Japan. After learning the method, it’s time to dye! Choose the color from 18 beautiful colors which all comes from 100% natural pigments. You can also choose the shibori pattern from simple one to difficult one.

In the process of dyeing, we use lots of water. If we use the chemical dye, it may cause the water pollution. In this workshop, however, we use 100% natural pigments. We don't use any organic solvent, either. We care very much about the soap as well. After the dyeing process, we wash the scarf with the olive oil soap and the underground water. That’s why this dying method is sustainable.

The experienced craftsmen will teach you how to do shibori in an easy way which is super fun! It’s the perfect activity even for a family with small kids!

If you bring your little ones, you can choose an option to dye handkerchiefs(¥1840 per one handkerchief). Please let me know in advance if you need those options.

Hi, I'm Kazue. I'm a crafter myself, and I'm hosting two experiences by myself.

SASHIKO (Japanese folk embroidery) workshop

I'm also interested in natural dyes and shibori, so I'm learning them right now.

In the process of learning, I met wonderful craftsmen who dyes beautiful colors with the natural dyestuffs as marigold, madder, log wood, cochineal etc. Their dyeing method is called "Shin manyozome" and there is a big difference from the ordinary natural dyes.

I was fascinated by the unique dyeing method of Shinmanyozome. I’m sure you’ll be surprised how quickly and beautifully you can dye. Come join to experience both the folding shibori and the natural dye with the skilled craftsmen in the dye factory!

Unde vei fi

The workshop will be held at the dye factory in the residential area where you will never find by yourself. There are lots of amazing craftsmen in Kyoto who do their business outside the touristy area. Most of them are not good at speaking English, so you don't have a chance to see their amazing works and techniques. This is a rare opportunity to meet the people who actually continuing the traditional culture in Kyoto.

Kazue was very personable, friendly, and knowledgeable. She met my 9 yr-old daughter and me at the train station. Then, walked us to a factory. The scarf-dying process was well organized in terms fo directions, ingredients, and explanations. Kazue translated for the head artist. The head artist seemed to be an expert, and he acted as though he was very happy to share his work with us :) . During the dying activity, Kazue took pictures and shared the pictures with me via air drop at the end of the session.

Even for someone with no experience in dyeing or the techniques, this was an amazing experience and you come away with a wonderful unique handmade souvenir to remind you of your time in Kyoto and a greater appreciation for the arts of Japan. This is definitely off the beaten path, and not something you could otherwise stumble upon. Kazue is a wealth of knowledge and steered us to a few other great spots to visit.
