Arashi Shibori - Workshop Preview
Ana Lisa Hedstrom provides a complete Arashi Shibori pole wrapping workshop in Arashi Shibori: A Language of Stripes. Beginning with basic wrapping techniques using string, Ana Lisa demonstrates step-by-step how to achieve simple and more complex patterns on a variety of fabrics.
Ana Lisa draws extensive inspiration from Japanese Arimatsu Shibori traditional fabrics and adapts traditional Arashi pole wrapping methods to be used in a contemporary studio.
A virtual visit to the fabrics of Arimatsu is included in this 2-hour video class which includes a number of antique samples with lost techniques. We view the sample fabrics Ana Lisa has collected over the years during her visits to Arimatsu and Narumi. These indigo-dyed cotton yukata fabrics display an amazing range of simple and complex patterns including Angel Wings (hagaromo) and the Arashi Net Pattern. Both the contemporary and antique fabrics show the amazing skill and ingenuity of the Japanese artisans.
