Shibori is the traditional Japanese art of tying, folding, or pleating fabric, then dying it to produce a unique color and texture on the fabric.  Shibori offers a surprising array of binding methods for a "resist".  We will explore some of these techniques, including wrapping, stitching, clamping, binding, folding, twisting and turning the fabric around a resist.  Throughout the day, students will have the opportunity to produce a series of experimental samples exploring a variety of ways to manipulate the fabric, dye it, and heat-set it.  Students will then have the opportunity to create a silk scarf using the technique of their choice.
