Shibori Workshop at deCordova
Shibori, the elegant forbearer to psychedelic tie-dye, is a Japanese resist dyeing technique that is simple enough to do in your backyard but vast with possibility.
The term “shibori” comes from the Japanese “shiboru,” meaning “twisted and pressed”. Designs are created by folding, binding, and compressing fabric before submerging it in dye; the manipulation of the fabric from the 2-D plane into a 3-D form prevents the dye from penetrating the internal parts of this fabric clump, yielding distinctive organic, often geometric patterns. While much of the art of Shibori is in the preparation and planning, accident and chance must also be embraced.View more
