Dying Silk- Shibori Technique

It has been fun getting to know other silk artists through Etsy and one of my new friends invited me to a lesson where they were doing the Shibori technique. It was a relaxed evening with other silk art fans and I enjoyed meeting more silk artists and trying some techniques I would have never tried at home.

Thanks Ieva for inviting me!

Boiling the scarves in the various dyes. Each scarf was prefolded or twisted in various ways  before being immersed in the dye.

Folding the scarf in preparation for the second color dye bath.

Air drying our scarves- this plaid one was one of mine.

So many beautiful scarves!
