Written by expert shibori teacher Jane Callender, this beautiful, practical book is packed with both traditional and inventive stitch-resist techniques, a complete dyeing guide and an inspirational gallery of Jane's work.

This book contains all the information a beginner will need to get started - including tips on dyeing in small spaces and a guide to all the health and safety considerations - but is also packed with innovative techniques and inspiring designs that will appeal to the experienced textile artist too.

The book is broken into three sections. The first shows all the key stitch-resist techniques needed - from the basics right through to creating intricate designs – and all are clearly explained with photography and illustrations. The second section shows how to use motifs to plan and create pattern. Finally, the book contains a complete guide to dyeing – containing recipes, tips and advice. It teaches you how to dye with both natural and synthetic indigo, in organic and synthetic vats. It also contains a guide to a wide range of natural dyes, iron rust and dazzling Procion dyes, which can be used in combination or alone for amazing effects.

Author Biography

Jane Callender fell in love with indigo and shibori when she studied textiles at the West Surrey College of Art and Design. She went on to study at the Natalie Bray school of Haute Couture. A well-respected shibori textile artist and teacher, Jane is based in East Anglia. Limiting her palette and using indigo predominantly, she focuses on shibori technique, inventing stitch formats and finding further surface qualities to combine with indigo shibori resists.

Jane teaches and presents her textiles in schools, art institutions, at degree level and in many groups and guilds, both in the UK and overseas. Her work has evolved out of a passion for pattern-making and in 2011 she authored the book 2000 Pattern Combinations: for Graphic, Textile and Craft Designers.
