Abstract:

"Shibori is the Japanese term for the dye-resist technique of binding, clamping, or gathering cloth so that dye cannot reach certain parts. The result is a powerful combination of carefully structured design with the organic freedom of the unpredictable." "In recent years, a resurgence of the art has revealed its full potential. Janice Gunner's book is aimed at quilters, embroiderers, and textile artists who want to both master the techniques of shibori and find ways of using the fabric for a range of textile applications." "The book begins with the historical and cultural background, then goes on to explain clearly, with step-by-step instructions and diagrams, how to make a wide range of exquisite fabrics."--BOOK JACKET.
