Difficulty: Adventurous beginner to intermediate
The art of Shibori dates back to at least 8th century Japan and consists of binding, folding, stitching, twisting, or compressing fabric and then dyeing it. The different manipulations affect how the dye is absorbed into the fabric and produce beautiful patterns when the fabric is unfolded and washed out. With this eBook you will create beautiful, unique dyed patterns using square pieces of fabric and origami-like folding patterns. It’s much easier than it looks!
