At Focus on Fiber, besides the paint on fabric techniques, shared previously, I also enjoyed three days of using dye, discharge, shibori, and batik methods to alter fabric with Wendy Smith-Wood. I used silk and acid dyes for the all these processes except for batiking in which I used both silk and cotton and Procion MX dyes.

I want to share a few examples of the fabric designed with various methods during these three days.
