Shibori Stream

Online interactive classes
Shibori stitching

Shibori Stream sessions will be for small groups of up to 8 participants. The sessions will be weekly. It is planned that each session will be for an hour and a half with a 15 minute comfort break.
Many techniques will be covered as in a real life workshop. The first session introduces you to shibori and deals with basics – fabric choices, shibori thread and other equipment that you may need as the course progresses. The techniqus we will be looking at in the first session is stitching on single thickness fabric for pattern and design. It is hoped that over several courses we will cover the following:

  • Stitch resist includes the basics – hira-nui, ori-nui and make-nui with many variations, combinations and innovations
  • Binding techniques, ne-maki shibori plus maki-age shibori; various boshi techniques to cap and reserve
  • Bo maki shibori – cylinder/pole wrapping – methods include the ever popular arashi
  • Itajime – board clamping
  • Machined resists – hopefully!
  • Lesser known shibori techniques such as hotaru and shirokage shibori may be introduced
  • Pattern planning
  • Combination methods
