Stitched Shibori by Jane Callender
Stitched Shibori: Technique, Innovation, Pattern Design
Written by eminent shibori artist and expert teacher Jane Callender, this beautiful, practical guide to stitched shibori contains both traditional and innovative stitch techniques, a comprehensive guide to dyeing and an inspirational collection of Jane’s work.
The softcover book is broken into three sections: technique, pattern and dyeing. A wide range of stitch-resist techniques – worked on their own or combined with other shibori methods – are all carefully explained with photography and clear illustrations. Instruction is given on how to take techniques further to develop motifs and textures for pattern or a unique art textile. The recipe section has clear guidance on preparation and procedure and ensures shibori resists in a broad spectrum of colour on natural fabrics. Natural, organic and synthetic indigo vat recipes are given along with natural dyes and fibre-reactive dye recipes. All the jewel-like colours can be used alone or in combination with indigo.
This comprehensive resource book contains all the information a beginner will need to get started. It is also packed with innovative techniques and ideas that will enthuse and inspire the experienced textile artist.
