Shibori

Today we learnt the technique called shibori. This is a Japanese technique were you either fold the fabric, or what we did were we tied objects into the fabric and left it in a dye bath for roughly an hour, and when you remove the objects from the fabric, the fabric should keep its shape.

I tested this technique with coins, bolts and mini pegs. I photocopied the fabric before removing the objects, to show you the shape, and then took a photo of it, once I had removed the objects. I thought this technique was interesting, but don’t know where I would use this.
