[2014 Symposium registration opens June 23 at 10am.]
2014 Maiwa Textile Symposium
Workshop Shibori - Splash Colour
$295 includes 50 lab fee
September 27, 28 - Class Limit 15
Maiwa East: 1310 Odlum Drive, Vancouver BC
The aim of the workshop is to create an exciting range of indigo “splash colour” shibori fabrics which when combined through appliqué and quilting will create multi-layered surfaces for decorative purses, bags, and pouches.
Designing within the constraints of a flat cloth destined for a three-dimensional form (such as a bag) poses unique design challenges. We will be working shibori specifically to suit shape and refine shibori skills.
Students will explore bound, reserved, cylinder wrap, itajime, and stitched indigo resist. Participants will use cotton and silk of different weights and textures and employ plain and dip-dyeing of jacquards and brocades.
The focus of the workshop will be shibori. Appliqué and quilting techniques will be demonstrated for completion of the bag at home.
