Itajime or folding and clamping is a simple process with infinite possibilities.
Students will make a series of bold graphic designs on sample fabrics and a scarf using silk acid dyes. Ana Lisa will bring some carved clamps with a decorative maze cut into the blocks to channel the dyes. This technique is called Kyokechi and she will bring samples of Japanese and Chinese clamped fabric as well as examples of her own work.
