Informative and fun. Love my shirt!

I booked the class online only a few days beforehand, and when I arrived, I discovered I was the only participant. Having the opportunity to have one-on-one attention was great, if a little daunting!

The instructor talked me through some history of the use of indigo, and then through a few different techniques, including the use of a stencil and tie-dye techniques. Then we dyed my shirt and rinsed it out. I am very proud of the result, and can't wait to wear it!

Took my own sketches and translated them to my ( mini !!) tote bag ..Had had some previous experience of batik but years ago ..
Enjoyed activity ..could get ‘hooked’ and return for some future tie-dyeing !!
Would want a larger tote if I re-did the same activity but tie-dyeing a cloth or t-shirt could also be great..

Great 90 minute activity for anyone. Everything is provided, the process is divided into logical easy steps and the staff cleans up after! The instructors are wonderfully enthusiastic and positive. My group did the towels and everyone was pleased and proud of their results. Close to Asakusa...makes for a morning well spent.

We had a nice time making bags. Although it would have been nicer to have more detailed instruction, the staff was very kind and helpful during the workshop.

A lot of fun to make our own patterns with wax and then dye the bags ourselves. The instructor went to great lengths to help us protect our clothes and skin from the dye, which we appreciated. Very fun!
