Aya Fiber Studio, 170 NE Dixie Hwy, STUART, Florida, United States
EXPLORATIONS IN SHIBORI:
Ana Lisa will give instruction on the basics and more advanced arashi, itajime folding and clamping and katano sewing machine shibori. Then we will try various applications of dye comparing natural dyes and thickened fiber reactive dye and silk acid dyes.
- Painting with natural dyes on shibori textures
- Kakishibu persimmon tannin, resist scouring silk
- Experimenting on paper and wool felt.
Removing color is always magical. After years working with chemical color removing of commercial dyes, I have been experimenting with removing indigo using shibori and direct application using potassium permanganate. With the addition of tannin, shades of tan and brown can be achieved.
Other natural dye colors may be removed with citric acid and even lemon juice.
This class is for both beginning and more advanced dyers.
Design discussion will be an integral part of the class
