Shibori Dyed Paper

Updated: Jul 9





This paper dyeing method is a technique for folding, clamping and dyeing paper or fabric that results in beautiful designs – very similar to tie-dye. The folds and clamps keep the dye or ink from penetrating fully in certain areas making patterns and giving a dimensional appearance on a flat surface. This project is a great way to teach students the scientific concept of diffusion, color mixing and pattern making.
