Shibori Experiments

One of my favourite spots at the Festival of Quilts was the Virtual Studio run by the Committed to Cloth ladies. They had some plastic shape sets for shibori so I had to get some. OK , I probably bought all the sets.

I have some clamps but they were a little awkward to put somewhere so I could actually dip or pour dye. This little tray did the trick this time but not perfect.

I did three, one metre pieces which is really as big as I can do easily I think.
I had three primaries mixed up already and pre-soaked the fabric in soda ash and used them damp (too impatient to wait for them to dry)

Fuschia and Lemon Yellow (and a bit of leaking Turquoise I think) and rectangular window shapes.
 My favourite I think

Turquoise and Lemon Yellow with rectangles shapes
Like this one

Fuschia and Turquoise with circles

Not enough pressure on the circles but will try again.

Great fun! I bought some circles and squares as well in the virtual studio. Great stuff, isn't it? I will follow a workshop with Elin Noble in January. Can't wait, especially when I see your experiments.
