Technique, Innovation, Pattern, Design
Written by eminent shibori artist Jane Callender, this beautiful, practical guide to stitched shibori contains both traditional and innovative stitch techniques, a comprehensive guide to dyeing and an inspirational collection of Jane's work.
The book is broken into three sections : technique, pattern, and dyeing. A wide range of stitch-resist techniques -- worked on their own and with other shibori methods -- are all carefully explained with photography and illustrations. Instruction is given on how to take techniques further to develop motifs for pattern or a unique art textile. The recipe section has clear guidance of preparation and procedure and ensures shibori resists in a broad spectrum of color on natural fabrics. Natural, organic, and synthetic indigo vat recipes are given along with natural dyes and fiber-reactive dye recipes. All the jewel-like colours can be used alone or in combination with indigo.
This comprehensive resource book contains all the information a beginner will need to get started. It is also packed with innovative techniques and ideas that will enthuse and inspire the experienced textile artist.
