Shibori is a Japanese art of resist.

Shibori is a Japanese art of resist.

There is a special sweetness is being able to participate in creation …

Michelle de Domahidy is a local slow artist based in the 2484.  She’s also (I’m incredibly proud to say) a new addition to our creative and store styling team.

Holding a visual arts degree majoring in textiles she is a designer and creator passionate about fabric printing and pattern creation.

“Giving simple things new value.  Perhaps a piece of plain cotton or silk. Making something ordinary into an extraordinary art creation by adding a new print or considered design.”

Clarity and I took a drive to Mishi’s oasis in Tyalgum ~ where her and her young family are building their own home and garden of Eden.  Surrounded by the Caldera mountain ranges (and treated to a home made tea cake and fresh herbal tea) we had a beautiful time watching, learning and participating in the art of Shibori dyeing.

“Shibori is a Japanese art of resist.  Working with positive and negative spaces ~ giving value to each.  Created through folding, wrapping, twisting and stitching fabric parcels.  Shibori can be random or ordered and geometric.  There is also an element of surprise.  That’s the great thing about this art.  You can have an idea of what you’re creating.  But until the fabric comes out of the dye bath you just have to let go.”

Excitingly Mishi will be featuring her creations as part our December Christmas window.

Pop by and see them soon!  We'd love to meet you.
