Make it Shibori time!

Labour Day Long Weekend Craft-time!!

Up at my mother’s cottage this weekend, my uncle/painter Nicholas Voeikoff-Erens & I combined creative forces yesterday, trying our hands at Shibori.

Shibori is Japanese textile art- an assortment of tie-dying techniques. We attempted a few different techniques from Mandy Southan’s book. Nick sketched silhouettes that I hand stitched. Other techniques tried & all tied up to dye today. Stay tuned for the results!
