Coupled with your imagination an endless number of traditional and contemporary shibori motifs, patterns and designs can be created using Jane’s innovative and unique stencils.
Made in strong plastic they are cut with precision more intricately than templates specifically to make shibori stitching guidelines quick and easy to mark on the fabric. Being sturdy they are ideal for building repeat patterns as they can be used time and again.
Below are examples that have been achieved by using either the narrow gauge row placement stencil for fine, light weight fabrics or the wide gauge for heavier fabrics. The difference can be seen clearly in the Hexagon images below. Results will depend on the fabric you choose.
Jane brings her expertise to the stitching instructions which are supported by clear diagrams. Ideas for pattern development are also included.
No instruction for knots is given. The instruction for knots is available separately as a download. No dyeing instruction is given.
Jane has worked with her shibori stencils for many years and uses them in her workshops.
