"shibori girl"

I took a terrific class in Shibori dyeing at last week's International Quilt Festival in Long Beach, taught by Shibori Girl Glennis Dolce, an expert in the field.

In the three hour session, we covered several methods of this Japanese dyeing method, using a variety of silks. The piece shown here was a very light chiffon, and the result was both ethereal and mysterious. Glennis is an outstanding teacher and covered oodles of methods in our very short time frame, a remarkable feat.
