March Workshop - Shibori Dyeing

Julie Fayle gave a very informative demonstration of two Shibori techniques -Itajime (folded Shibori) and Arashi (winding technique) and Guild members, as you can see, produced some very colourful and experimental pieces, some of which will form the basis for work inspired by Milntown Garden and Landscapes exhibition from mid September to mid October 2016.

The Itajime technique required more precise ironing and folding than the Arashi technique which produced a much more sophisticated result.

This shows work in the process of dying after the silk had been folded and ironed and then 'scrunched' tightly around a wooden pole and then dye added - the is the Arashi technique.
