Shibori part 2

Dipped and dangling. These are the pieces which we stitched, tied and clamped. Bags of little rocks were tied onto one edge, and lengths of string to the opposite edge. This was so that we could dangle the tied pieces in the vat without having to dunk our hands.

The pieces of silk were dipped twice and the cotton dipped three or four times. The most exciting part of the day was unwrapping the fabric from the poles which had been left to dry overnight. Loads of oohs and ahhs.
