Began with a white cotton shawl and tested out one folding method and two binding methods.
Bottom Left detail: Cloth was folded and pinched at random then bound with cotton thread.
Bottom Middle detail: Katano Shibori: The cloth was folded into vertical pleats then circular stitching combined with small tack stitches through all layers directs the flow of the dye.
Bottom Right detail: Komasu Shibori modified: Cloth was folded in half, disappearing ink was then used to mark triangles, then cotton thread is sewn with a large running stitch. (Top left image) Each section is drawn up and knotted. Second stage is to bind each of the points together.
It was then dyed in MX Reactive dye, stirred lightly, soda ash was then added. Finally the fabric was rinsed, washed with a Synthrapol wash and washed again.
