Shibori:  Classic Techniques:  New Ideas

After a review of the classic patterns Arashi shibori, Itajime, and Katano machine stich resist, we will discover some new ways of using these techniques.  We will also combine some of these techniques to create new patterns and learn advanced processes such as the Arashi net pattern.

Indigo, silk acid dyes, and fiber reactive dyes will be explored in a variety of ways, and resist silk scouring will make areas of crisp and soft silk that receive the dye differently. This class is for beginners through experienced shibori dyers. Using our fabrics for clothing, quilts, and art textiles will be part of the discussion.

Come and explore new possibilities!  Ana Lisa will bring samples of traditional Japanese Shibori and examples of her own work.

PLEASE NOTE: This will be Ana Lisa Hedstrom's last year of teaching.
