Shibori & Indigo: Experimentations in Traditional Japanese Dye Techniques with Nellie Rose Davis Andrew Carroll June 14, 2016 Nellie Rose Davis will teach Shibori & Indigo: Experimentations in Traditional Japanese Dye Techniques during Week 3, Irish Week, running July 19-24, 2015. This course will introduce and explore various shape-resist dye techniques traditionally developed and used in Japan to create patterns on fabric. Students will experiment with sewing, folding and clamping and pole-wrapping. Students will also make indigo dye baths to use throughout the week, which will allow the class to play with the rainbow of indigo to make beautiful pieces. Materials: $45 A native of Elkins, WV, Nellie Rose Davis is the daughter of two textile artists who practice shibori, a Japanese dyeing tradition. As a Fulbright Fellow (2011-2012), she conducted independent research on Japanese textiles and design at Osaka University of Arts in Osaka, Japan. Through her studies and travels she met the world-renowned shibori and indigo dyer, Hiroko Harada. Nellie soon returned to Japan to study under Hiroko as her final apprentice. Following Nellie’s return home to the states, she started developing a line of clothing and scarves, and in the fall of 2013 established Nellie Rose Textiles.
