Artspace works: Aizome shibori

Originally uploaded by SOFennell

Just a quick note about yesterday – I came home exhausted (probably more from the heat), but it was a refreshing experience. The kids seemed to have found their comfort level. They came together for the big project and worked so well together. Then, they were eager to move on to their smaller independent projects (but they also wanted to do some dyeing).

After a short break we finally approached the dye vat again, this time with arashi (pole wrapping). Some dyed the first of their fish pieces and I was so happy with the results.

The indigo was a wonderful deep hue and what a difference that made! We had a blast and time flew. It was hard to stop and clean up, but there was promise of the next day (today!).

      thank you! some of the girls in this class can’t seem to get enough of it. they invent little pieces for themselves and finding little challenges…how dark will it go, if i use a paintbrush handle or pencil to pole wrap instead of the pcv pipe… etc., etc. then again, I think they like it when their hands get stained with it. they hang around the dye vat.
