This book is a must-have for shibori artisans!

Shibori is a dye-resist process that includes many different techniques - binding, clamping, sewing, folding and many more way to gather cloth so that the dye cannot penetrate the entire piece.

In recent decades, fabric artisans and textile designers across the world have discovered the beauty of the creative process as well as the sometimes-surprising results of shibori.

This book is a how-to in photos and descriptions that anyone can follow to create their own shibori textiles.
It covers: tied resist, stitched resist, wrapped resist, clamp resist, folded and pleated resist, heat set techniques, discharge dyeing techniques, immersion and other dyeing techniques. The book also includes inspiring photos of how shibori can be used in quilting, embroidery, and garment design.
