Blue Surprise

Blue Surprise

Originally uploaded by SOFennell

So yesterday, we got serious with color. The kids had their introduction to shibori with itajime (clamping) and some binding. They worked with muslin scraps, moved up to 12 inch squares, then tenugui (hand towel) or hachi maki (headband) sized pieces. We used RIT dyes for this particular activity. However, I plan to use Procion as well as indigo as the week moves on.

This particular piece was a complete surprise. The student had initially forgotten to add her “back” pieces for clamping. So, I sent her back to do that and this is the final result. I think “we” are still “cool.”
