Silk Scarf Painting

A couple of weeks ago I took part in a Silk Painting workshop using a wonderful technique called shibori, which is an ancient Japanese dying technique that is very similar to tie-dye and produces some amazing results!

The class started with a cup of tea while Ruth, the instructor, told us about shibori and showed some examples of silks which she had created. This then led onto her showing us different ways we could fold, twist and tie the silk or use elastic bands, marbles, pegs and tubes to create different patterns in the dye. Although you can predict what the dyed pattern will look like you can never be certain, as the dyes may flow different, different colours mix together etc which makes it very exciting when seeing the final result!
