This is one of the pieces made by my teacher, Tari Kerss, a very talented textile artist. Here’s her website. TariKerss.com. It’s never too late to learn new things so off to school I go! I know I will love the new skills and knowledge that Tari will be sharing with us. We will be exploring tie-dye, batik, and painting and printing of fabric using dyes and pigments. In our next class we will be using the following Shibori Folding Techniques: twist and coil, pleated diagonally, marbling, knots or Arashi, banding, folded square, binding with slip knots, and clamping. We’ll do each technique on a 12 x 12 in. square of cotton and use several dye colors. I can’t wait! I’ll post some pics of my completed samples when I finish. I’m looking forward to applying these new techniques in the designing of fabric for apparel. I probably can count this as my newly learned skill on the Monthly Stitch for January :)
Today we did the burn test on mystery fabrics and my partner and I identified 3 out of 4!
Who can name the four oldest fabrics in order?
