This past week’s lesson in the online shibori class was on pole wrapping or arashi shibori. I took an old piece of pvc pipe and wrapped my fabric around it. I methodically and slowly wrapped the pole in about 1/8 of inch increments and then dipped the pole in colorhue dye. Instant color.
For these four pieces of silk, I used the color eggplant and rose which I really did not like. Maybe I will try overdyeing this.
That’s what I love about dyeing-you can always change your results-until you get mud….then you just start fresh with white again.
Let’s see what else I can sneak in this week while they are sleeping in.
Be creative, my friends!
