Shibori of Sunrise (HINODE)

Shibori is one of resist techniques by stitching, tieing, binding, wrapping. Then submerge the fabric into dye pot. It creates various lovely patterns. You will find various kinds of fabrics from Japan, India, Africa, Peru, and Indonesia.
Here are some students' work in the Shibori class at The Art Center(Highland Park, IL). The 3 images of navy blue (done by Pam, Wendy, Linda from left) are done by "HIDNODE(sunrise) shibori which required stitching and tieing.One image (by Jackie) is tieing the fabric for resit. Another image (by Ann) is untieing the fabric. It is an exciting moment to see the result!
