more shibori – day 2

August 27, 2012

we continued working on the previous day’s projects

Joanne re-tied and dyed her felt piece

it is on the far right in the picture on day 1

Lauren removed her stitching

Sandi top-dyed this masterpiece

I added a Lac dye pot

with several different shapes and sizes of boards to work with we started experimenting with board-clamping techniques

Joanne brought a cotton under-shirt to pole wrap

I was so intrigued I tried my own

do you think we are going to start a new fashion trend?

another busy day

    You look like you are having a wonderful time.I love the effects of pole wrapping, I envy you but I am aff to an indigo dye workshop in a couple of weeks with 2 ladies called Miyoko Kawahito and Sumi Takamoto. 4 and a half days indigo dyeing. What fun. Another workshop in February with Jane Callender from the UK who does wonderful designs in her shibori with stenceils, clamping, pole wrapping etc etc. should be fun.

      Judi – your workshops sound very interesting. I have seen pictures of Jane Callender’s work and it is fantastic. Would love to know how they go.

      Renee – shibori is fun, the results always have some surprises and you can overdye the entire piece if you don’t like it.

    Great clothesline shot. I love those clamp-resists.
