Shibori is the Japanese term for creating a patterned cloth using tied/sewn/bound resists. It is what we would call tie dye!
A few weeks ago I taught a couple of Shibori classes at Artworks Studio in Chichester. We tied, sewed and bound the fabrics one week and dyed the next. All of the pieces were dyed using Procion MX dyes – mostly Magenta MX-8B, Lemon Yellow MX-4G and Bright Turquoise MX-G. Scroll down to the bottom of this post where I have put a link to download the dye recipe and instructions. Here are the techniques that we focused on:
ITAJIME NANAME GOSHI
HOSHOITO ICHIDO KAIRYO
Happy Tie Dyeing!
