On Saturday, March 21st IJETAA held a Japanese Textiles workshop in The Temple Bar Gallery & Studios. Our teacher, Catherine Quinn, taught us some shibori techniques using indigo dye. Shibori uses a mixture of folding, tieing, binding and compression in order to create different patterns. We all made 2 pieces of shibori, each with their own unique pattern.
