Woven shibori is a relatively new technique in the weaving world. Spend a week sampling and create your own hand-woven, hand-dyed scarf. By inserting extra yarn while weaving and using them to manipulate the cloth while dyeing we will achieve a unique patterning effect that will change the look of the final piece. Participants will choose from a number of different patterns and after sampling will apply the process and weave a scarf. Please note: this is not a beginner class and all participants must have the ability to independently make a warp and dress a loom.

MATERIAL COST: $30.00 to be paid to the instructor on the day of the workshop for dyes and additional studio-specific supplies. Participants will be required to bring their own yarn or may purchase yarn from the college store.

The Instructor: Jacqueline has been a fibre artist for over 30 years. She loves all aspects of fibre arts. She enjoys exploring the interaction of colour and textures in her weaving in the creation of “one of a kind” fashion accessories and woven tapestries. Jacqueline has participated in numerous residencies and has received recognition through grants, awards, and publications. Her work is often thought-provoking as well as visually delightful. She is currently an instructor in the Textiles department at the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design.
