Thanks to the lovely people at Search Press for sending me a copy of this book for review. I have not been paid for this review and my opinions are my own.
This is a review of the 2003 edition of this book. There is also a more modern edition.

I've always been fascinated by Indigo dyeing, but mainly bought this book to improve my repertoire of Shibori (tie-dye!) techniques. It's got a section of 22 pages all about the different Shibori methods, and it's brilliant! Nice clear pictures, so many clothes pegs! It even has instructions for how to use a pleating machine (now I want one!) but remember that the folds won't stay in if you wash it later! I've tried quite a few of these techniques over the years, and have even used them for microwave dyeing with silk!
If you're into indigo, then it's also got recipes for two different dye vats, and a list of projects including a "Bog Jacket" (one piece of fabric, two seams ... sounds like my kind of sewing project!).
Experienced silk painter, glass fuser, teacher, enthusiastic and inspirational.
