Shibori class

I participated in a QBL2 class at the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center in Auburn taught by Elin Noble on making shibori-dyed fabric --Folds for Clamp-Dye Resist.

Elin started us out with some practice making folds with paper and using ink on the paper to test our designs.

We learned lots of ways to fold fabric and made many practice pieces with various resist items -- from chop sticks to blocks of wood.

These were some of the sample pieces that Elin brought to inspire us.

To wind up our class, we had a chance to look at some of the pieces made by our classmates.

It was a great class, and lots of fun was had by all!
