Our art museum has a wonderful school that offers classes for adults and children.  I haven’t taken any fine arts classes (drawing or painting) yet mainly because I’m still working my way thru the many fiber arts classes that I want to take.  Last semester I enjoyed my shibori class so much that I’m going to take it again this semester.  To me, there is something deeply enjoyable about dyeing–or creating color.  Rudolf Steiner said that the experience of color is a soul experience.  For myself, I know this to be true.

Shibori is simply Japanese tie-dye.  You use various binding and sewing techniques that create resists to dye.  Indigo (that deep dark blue) is traditionally used in Japan, but these shibori methods can be used with any type of dye.  Doing more plant dyeing is “on my list” of things to master…

Besides experiencing color, my favorite part of the shibori class was to work with a group of women to create some beautiful things.  I am reminded of the wet felted rug, wall hanging, pillows, knitted afghanWaldorf dolls, and many other projects that we did as a group of Moms.  One of the Kindergarten teachers in our Waldorf school asked me recently if we’d make a wall hanging for her parent/child classroom.  Hmmm….maybe it’s time once again to gather the Moms?
