NOTES ON WOVEN SHIBORI WEAVING FOR

 OCTOBER 19th DYE WORKSHOP

Woven shibori is a technique developed by Catharine Ellis (https://www.ellistextiles.com/woven_shibori/https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=6&v=R6JQ00iqogU) based on her observations of traditional Japanese shibori methods of dyeing cloth by pleating, folding or binding small areas of the cloth with silk or cotton threads (https://shibori.org/traditions/techniques/). 

On a base of plain weave, supplemental weft threads are woven into the cloth.  The supplemental threads are pulled and gathered. Once all the threads have been secured the fabric is dyed. Traditionally, indigo is the dye bath is choice.
