For this shibori technique, you fold your fabric into shapes and then clamp wood blocks onto the folded fabric as resist. In my case, I folded my silk scarf into fourths lengthwise before folding them into isosceles triangles. I used a rectangular block that bisected the triangle from the base to the vertex angle.
Doshi had an extra concentrated acid based dye bath going. It only took 5 minutes in the dye bath to get this beautiful indigo-like color. A quick cold water rinse and then we hung them out of the 5th story hotel window in the High Sierras for a few minutes and we had a ready to wear scarf!
Fun and inspiring workshop. I can’t wait to play with this technique some more.
