Bandhini/Shibori Project


Originally uploaded by SOFennell

Students have been stitching their pieces for most of this week after having drawn their motifs and transferred them to the cloth. We are losing track of time even though we frequently check the calendar to ensure we stay on schedule. We’ve built in some flexibility which is a good thing. Our students are young, many are inexperienced with needle and thread, so this is a challenge. It takes longer than anticipated. As it is, it has seemingly been a quiet, calming and enjoyable activity for these students. Even though there’s been some friendly banter and chatter, they’ve mostly been engaged with their work.

Today I fired up the indigo dye pot, but few participated in that activity. Tomorrow holds promise and we look forward to seeing those results.
