shibori on the web
I have been finding some wonderful websites on shibori, which are both inspiring and informational.
- a nicely done online tutorial on shibori: http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/dyeing-fabric-shibori-techniques. I wouldn’t use the chemical dyes they refer to, but the examples of stitching are great!
- a shibori artist who dyes primarily with indigo: http://www.callishibori.co.uk/index.htm
- an artist who specializes in pleated shibori ribbon: http://shiborigirl.wordpress.com/
- lovely photos of the Itajime shibori process: http://kaizenjourney.blogspot.com/2008/01/itajime-shibori-process.html
More links to come when I have time to explore further!
