October 2017 – Shibori: Laurel Jinks

Laurel gave us an inspirational presentation about Shibori. She began by discussing the roots of the technique before explaining the different methods involved and particularly their used in Japan. She had brought many examples of her own work in Shibori and was able to show us the end product of some of the work. In the question and answer session that followed her expertise in this topic came through. It was nice to see lots of books that could be purchased to get one going with Shibori. Anne had brought along examples of woven Shibori and a visitor had us in awe over a quilted hanging she had produced, whilst Janet showed how the technique could be used with fine Nuno felt. Laurel offered to run a workshop for us, which from the reaction will be sooner rather than later.
