Shibori is the Japanese word for creating resists in fabric by stitching, folding and wrapping it before dyeing.
Angela will teach you how to transform a fat quarter of white fabric using four different Shibori techniques. You’ll be taught two different stitch resist techniques, a wrapped technique and a clamped technique.
Angela will explain how to dye your fabric in two different ways; using a blue colour water dye and using turmeric which is a natural dye and gives yellow shades.
You can watch this video as many times as you like, pause and replay so that you can really get to grips with this fun method of tie dyeing.
