Master weaver Catharine Ellis revisits her classic work Woven Shibori in this new, updated edition. Shibori, a traditional Japanese dying technique, uses folding, stitching, wrapping or tying to manipulate fabric before dying. Ellis's method allows weavers to work the resist threads directly into the woven fabric. The results speak for themselves! With all the techniques and tips that made the first edition so beloved, plus brand-new information on using natural dyes and beautiful new photography, this edition is bound to be a book weavers turn to again and again.
