Hey,
Has anyone tried the woven shibori technique from Catharine Ellis' book? I got it from the library and was thinking of trying it out for my first project of the semester in my weaving and fiber arts class, but wanted to get a second opinion on how well the technique has worked for others before I stake my grade on it! I was thinking of making a long warp, enough for 3 scarves, and then dye each scarf with different dyes and maybe do a cotton warp and a wool weft and do 2 different immersion dyes in acid and fiber reactive dyes to see the different color effects.  Or maybe do 1 scarf just fiber reactive dyes, 1 just acid, and 1 both? Anyway I wanted to see if anyone had tried the technique and has any tips or suggestions
