Fiber Artists Gathering--SE Asian Textiles

At our recent Fiber Artists meeting, Our guest speaker-- Donna Durbin brought numerous textiles that she purchased while living in SE Asia.  She had a treasure trove of interesting fiber techniques in her collection.

More Reverse applique, ikat dyeing

Warp and weft ikat

Knotting with hemp

Another hemp knotted bag

Warp that has been tied for weaving

These were cotton fibers with weft ikat

This was a silk weft ikat

Pick-up weave structure

Shibori tied indigo dyed

Hemp yardage

I liked the contrast of these two rolls of yardage

In this fiber you can see the subtle differences in the warp.  It is always an interesting time when you can touch and feel textiles from another country.
