In part 2 there are further and more complex and innovative nui shibori stitch techniques. We will be looking at the many inventive traditional Japanese shibori techniques when it comes to binding to a central core using cylinders and rope and can bring our own interpretation to these methods. Itajime is introduced and there are many different approaches that can be taken to bring about great differences. Techniques can be combined in innovative ways and we will look at other dye processes.

I look forward to seeing you again!
