Arimatsu Narumi Shibori: Celebrating 400 Years of Japanese Artisan Design
DIGITAL EDITION - AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE DOWNLOAD
Produced by Studio Galli Productions and narrated by Yoshiko I. Wada, this comprehensive overview of traditional Japanese shibori techniques from the Aichi Provence of Japan features technical demonstrations by local master artisans. Learn the shibori process from start to finish with detailed recordings of each step, from designing and stenciling to dyeing and drying on cotton and silk fabrics, thread removal, and finishing.
Techniques include six styles of hand-knotting (kanoko, miura, and te-kumo variations), stitching (nui-shibori variations), pleating (tesuji, tatsumaki, and other variations), and fold-and-clamp methods (sekka, itajime). In addition, the film covers several techniques for machine-aided shibori and sekka dyeing. A wonderful compliment to the courses from Ana Lisa Hedstrom on pole wrapping or a great foundation into understanding traditional Japanese stitch and clamp resist and tie and dye.
