Contextural ACAD residency 2

Another area of textiles that I am working in during this three-month summer residency at ACAD is using Acid Dyes on wool with the Japanese Itajime technique, in my case called resist-clamp Shibori.

I started by dyeing pieces of wool different shades of yellow.

Then I use various tools to layer with different resists (plexiglass shapes, washers) and clamps to then add to the dye pot.

Now there are two layers of colour.

Repeat the process and more colours are added. Here are some of the final pieces.
