We also did Shibori techniques with construction paper as experiments

For the past 2 weeks or so, the middle school students have been learning about Shibori.  Shibori is the ancient Japanese art of manipulating fabric in particular ways and then dying it.  It's similar to tie-dye here in the West but Shirbori is for me, more thoughtful and artistic.  Here's a great video we watched about this traditional craft.


We used Rit Dye in turquise and we also did reverse Shibori with bleach.  We kept our doors open to ventilate the room  and used gloves for protection.  I wish I had taken more pictures but the students took their shirts home right away so time got the best of me.
