Rediscover Woven Shibori
In this update of the classic Woven Shibori
, master weaver Catharine Ellis teaches weavers of all skill levels how to create beautiful dyed woven cloth, using environmentally friendly natural dyes. Shibori is a traditional Japanese technique, in which a piece of cloth is shaped by folding, stitching, tying, or wrapping then dyed to create stunning color patterns. Ellis developed a method of weaving resist warp and weft threads directly into the cloth and shared her findings in her breakthrough book. Featuring all-new information on working with natural dyes and dozens of new photographs, this revised edition is an invaluable resource for weavers. It features:
- Techniques for incorporating shibori into two-shaft weaves, monk's belt, overshot, twills, laces, and other patterns
- Guidance and inspiration for creating your own woven shibori designs
- Instructions for preparing the fabric for dyeing and finishing the dyed cloth
- Recipes for creating natural dyes from plants and insects to dye both plant and animal fibers
- Special effects for enhancing woven shibori, including layering colors, cross dyeing, felting, creating permanent pleats, and burning out
opens up a world of creative surface design possibilities for weavers and textile artists.
