Photos From the Last Dyeing Session

After mordanting and then rewetting the woven scarf, it was laid out on my studio table, ready for painting.
The scarf was painted in strategic places with logwood gray.

After partially drying, the gathering threads were pulled up and knotted.

Each side was painted, one with cutch, the other with fustic.

After painting, the scarf was steamed to set the dyes.

After steaming and cooling, the gathering threads were removed.

And then the scarf was fully dried, finished, and fringed.

Thank you for sharing the process. My weaving guild has a presentation on woven shibori tonight. I can't wait. :-)
