Explore Arashi Shibori further with Ana Lisa Hedstrom
Anyone who has tried Arashi Shibori knows the magic of unwrapping the fabric and finding both planned and serendipitous patterns. Try distorting the fabric either before or after wrapping…or work with wool gauze to create textured shibori stripes of felted wool and loose gauze.
Instead of relying on the usual Arashi results, Ana Lisa challenges the viewer to consider new twists, plucks, and distorted pleats in an effort to push the boundaries of Arashi into new directions and dimensions. Unusual fabrics such as wool are covered as well in this workshop which is certain to expand both your skill, understanding and wardrobe.
