I wish to explore this process in my work.
Shibori comes from the verb root “shiboru” – to wring squeeze or press, and would be used to describe wringing out the washing. The emphasis is upon the action performed on the cloth. Shibori is the act of compressing a fabric to create a resist. Cloth records the shape and pressure that was applied to it as a pattern/texture.
The cloth can be manipulated in many ways: stitching and gathering, binding, clamping, capping (covering with a waterproof material), folding, crumpling, plaiting, knotting, pinching and twisting.
