Shibori technique

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.



About Annemarie Tickle

I am a Lecturer in Textiles at Hull School of Art and Design. As a visual artist I am interested in atmospheric conditions and events and how the scale of nature makes mans mark on the landscape look insignificant. I enjoy the act of doing and getting my hands dirty so my practice is intensly process led. I use a wide range of media but am particular interested in dying techniques.
