About the event
Sue’s longtime love of printmaking met a new passion for Shibori dyeing in the summer of 2021. Both involve the transfer of designs to a surface, but the processes are quite different.
Printmaking involves a careful transfer of a drawing to plate with the image evolving and changing during the carving. The result is a combination of planning and gut instinct.
The Shibori tradition, a Japanese manual hand-dyeing technique, is less controlled. It requires letting go—a bit scary, but wonderfully freeing. Variations in temperature, dye intensity, and fabrics used also create subtle changes in outcome. Each piece is truly a one-of-a-kind.
