The next exciting adventure - shibori

My fabric printing adventures continued this weekend with a shibori class at Harvest Textiles in Melbourne town. 

We used the traditional indigo dye with different blocks for the resist - string, children's stacking blocks, clamps and even split peas. Much fun was had and by the look of our finger nails it appeared we had cyanosis by the end of the class. 

Show and tell...

A sunny day in wintery Melbourne was perfect for drying our samplers and warming us up over lunch. It was quite surreal to sit  at the lunch table chatting about life with our indigo and white fabrics strung like a Japanese market all around us.
