It features: * Techniques for incorporating shibori into two-shaft weaves, monk's belt, overshot, twills, laces, and other patterns* Guidance and inspiration for creating your own woven shibori designs* Instructions for preparing the fabric for dyeing and finishing the dyed cloth* Recipes for creating natural dyes from plants and insects to dye both plant and animal fibers* Special effects for enhancing woven shibori, including layering colors, cross dyeing, felting, creating permanent pleats, and burning outWoven Shibori opens up a world of creative surface design possibilities for weavers and textile artists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In weaver Ellis's approach, the gathering threads are woven into the fabric while it is on the loom, then gathered and dyed as with the traditional method. Experienced weavers interested in exploring surface design will find guidance and encouragement." --Library Journal

"I love the techniques described in this book. I had not heard of Woven Shibori before reading this book and I am in awe of the beautiful results. If you are a weaver, this is definitely something to try!" --The Stitchin' Mommy
