I am finally getting around to posting about a piece that I did last week. I used Japanese Shibori techniques as my inspiration. Shibori techniques are different ways of folding, stitching, or compressing a length of fabric to create a resist for the dye. There are many ways that this can be done. I used pole wrapping as my inspiration. I wound a length of fabric around a pvc pipe in a diagonal direction. Then I wrapped the whole thing with string and compressed it by pushing the fabric into itself from both ends as tight as I could get it. After that I dyed it using fiber reactive dye in sky blue. I waited for a day and washed it out. Here are the results.
Have a happy week,
