Description

Arashi shibori is a method of wrapping cloth on a pole, scrunching it down along the length of the pole so it is in tight gathers, then dyeing it.  Indigo does not penetrate the folds, so random width diagonal stripes result.  The silk scarf was first wrapped on a pole and dipped in a light indigo bath, then marbled in a feather pattern with handmade red and yellow ocher and ultramarine blue paints.

Cotton! I spin it, weave it, and dye it with natural dyes. The spinning is very meditative, weaving gets my creative juices flowing, and the dyepot and marbling tray give the same joy as of a new discovery. I think every child should know by the time they are 9 what it is their hands like to do. My hands like fibery things and plants, and so I spin, weave, dye, and grow my dye garden. I love sharing my knowledge and strive to involve the community in my explorations.
