Lynne Caldwell - Shibori - A beginners guide to creating color & texture on fabric
Lark Books: 126 pages. Shibori - or Japanese tie-dye - is a patterned three-dimensional form created by a unique process of folding, crumpling, stitching, plaiting, plucking and twisting material. The result is gorgeous, soft-edged patterns that will delight sewers and fabric lovers alike. This appealing, modern take on a traditional art takes the intimidation out of a versatile craft and allows anyone to create beautiful items. Each chapter focuses on a specific method, from arashi (pole-wrapping) and stitching and gathering to using bleach to remove colour. The eighteen exquisite projects are embellished with detailed photos and easy-to-follow instructions throughout. This book is in English.
