Here At The Home...
... of The Arty Silkworm we like to do everything with an individual creative twist.
My amazing silk painting style creates beautiful, unique works of art, it's wearable too!
Shibori (しぼり / 絞り)
Here in Suffolk at The Arty Silkworm we adore the freehand, creative style that the manual resist technique provides.
The totally unique designs, with inspiration taken from the botanical world, the vibrant colours of the dyes are what
really bring the 100% Pure Silk to life.
There are an infinite number of ways we can wrap, bind, stitch, fold, twist, or compress silk for Shibori, and each way results in very different patterns.
Each method is used to achieve a certain result, but each method works in perfect harmony with the wonderful
fluidity of pure silk.
Different techniques can be used in conjunction with one another to achieve even more elaborate results.
