    Ghislaine will guide you through each step of creating a unique shibori weaving based on her 30 years of weaving and dyeing textiles in Hawai‘i. She guarantees you won’t get lost. Her exquisite weavings, functional and non-functional, have been widely exhibited and are both in use and on display in private collections.

    Woven shibori sounds complicated but it is really quite simple. First, weave fabric with a pattern of temporary weft threads woven along a permanent plain-weave cotton background. Next, take the cloth off the loom and gather the temporary threads to create a resist based on your selected woven pattern. And this is when the fun really begins, as we add color using an indigo vat and dye pots of various plant materials. Your finished piece will be your own unique creation.



    Items to bring for this class:

    • The room is air conditioned so wear something comfortable. Bring a facial mask.
    • Weaving supplies: two of your favorite shuttles, scissors, tape measure, note book, pen, etc.
    • Dyeing supplies: apron, dyeing gloves, two one-gallon buckets (Later in course)

    With her lively, inventive approach to making art, Liz will show you how to make your imagination come to life with color and wax.

    Liz Train has an MFA in Fiber Arts from the University of Hawaiʻi where she taught fiber arts from 1980-1987. She was a museum educator for the Contemporary Museum from 1998-2005; and taught weaving and fiber arts from 2006-2020 at the Honolulu Museum of Art School. She also worked with the Hawaiʻi State Art Museum's Art Bento outreach program to elementary schools, and taught after-school classes at Noelani Elementary School.

    In addition to fiber art Liz enjoys working with ceramics, fused glass, printmaking and mixed media. Her work has been included in many juried and group exhibits, and is in the collection of the Hawaiʻi State Foundation on Culture and Art.

    Batik is an Indonesian word meaning writing with wax. Waxed areas create a resist design that dyes and paint cannot penetrate. Traditional batik techniques involve successive applications of wax and dye, submersing the fabric in a dye vat, one color at a time and layering the wax resist.

    In this class we use a more modern technique of painting diluted acrylic paints instead of vat dyes. This allows the artist to create a variety of colors next to each other without the colors mixing with the previous layer. Traditional Indonesian tools and brushes will be used to apply hot soy wax resist to the fabric. Resist and dyed areas can be layered to create complex designs and lovely textures. Students will be able to create several samples of finished artworks.

    Items to bring for this class:

    • Wear old clothes or bring an apron. 
    • Students may wish to bring other fabrics after they have used the yard of white cotton polyester that will be included in the supply fee.
