With the emphasis on technique Jane will guide you through the main shibori disciplines - Stitch resist, itajime, cylinder wrapping – bo maki and arashi methods and binding options.  

Simple geometry will be discussed for stitched pattern planning and making with both ethnic tradition and contemporary interpretation investigated. The addition of her Applique Shibori technique will add a new dimension to pattern outcomes.

Combination techniques add depth to pattern and design. Various strength indigo from synthetic, natural chemical, tint and organic vats give ample opportunity to make full use of its remarkable tonal range and provide options for reserving and capping methods. The variety of hues extend with the addition of brazilwood extract for fuchsia pinks and purples with alkali tweaks and indigo. A small iron rust bath will also be available as will one or two fibre reactive dyes for accent dip dyeing/hand painting procedures. (Dyes may change depending on availability)
