Your Ah Haa Moment: Shibori With Kathy Green
Shibori is a cloth resist-dyeing technique that may include binding, stitching, folding, twisting, or compressing to create dye patterns on silk in Japan since the eighth century. Western civilization does not have an exact word equivalent to encompass all the techniques of shibori. The closest we get is tie-dye, but the term (and technique) simply covers the binding method of dyeing known as bound-resist.
In Kathy's class, students, beginners to experienced artists, will play with color to make silk scarves and purses, at least eight items in all over three days.
