Exploring Shibori: Process and Application

June 24, 2018 – July 7, 2018

Christine Zoller

Shibori refers to a group of wrapping, tying, folding and stitching techniques used to create pattern on fabric. This workshop provides a comprehensive study of the shibori process using natural fabrics with fiber reactive dyes, acid dyes and inks along with discharge techniques, burnout and some selected by the instructor. Students will also explore a variety of ways in which shibori fabrics can be used to create individual works of arts. This is accomplished through exploring surface design, art quilts, collage, embroidery/beadwork and garment construction. Demonstrations and individual attention allows students to explore their own personal expression. Open to all skill levels.
