Shibori

Submitted on Thu, 21st Apr 2011 at 15:53

For my first ever blog post I thought it would be perfect to write about shibori. Shibori is a type of printing but unlike screen, block or digital printing every design is unique and has elements of unpredictability and surprise -unwrapping the fabric after taking it out of the dye pot is so exciting, of course you know the direction you are heading in but not exactly where you will land or what the weather will be! No two pieces are exactly identical.
