Shibori Final

So that was a month full of Stitch resist Shibori at the Fireblog!



First of all I would like to thank my co-workers Sheila Fowler, Marsha Leith, Yvonne Watson and Eke Krug. It has been such an inspiration to see their experiments, it felt like we were in a classroom together for four weeks. Thank you digital revolution to make this possible!

Ofcourse, this is only the start of our journey in stitch resist shibori, if you like more inspiration, please check these websites for more tutorials and dye information:
