Orange Forum: 19-25 April 2009

Catharine Ellis from the USA is featuring next April in Orange with a spectacular workshop on Woven Shibori Shaping and Special Fibre Effects where “participants will begin to grasp the unlimited options open to them when various kinds of fibres and processes are combined in the finished cloth as shaping and texture are explored using polyesters, crepe spun yarn, felting and felt resist, cross dyeing and burn out.” Some dyeing will also be explored.
