Críticas:

Jun/Jul 12 The art of indigo dyeing dates back thousands of years; examples were found in the tombs of the ancient Egyptians and there are references to its use in the Bible. The practice of dyeing with Indigo, with is a dye derived from the plant of the same name, is an incredibly rich cultural tradition with each region of the world having its own unique methods and beliefs. Vivien shares her expertise as a dyer and also her mastery of shibori fabric resist techniques, showing the reader how a huge variety of wonderful effects can be produced by folding, stitching, binding and clamping fabric before dyeing. As the better weather approaches, this is certainly an interesting technique to try, just combine with a group of like-minded friends, a good lunch and the rest of the day will be full of surprises. Happy dyeing! * Fabrications * Winter 12/13 This is a reprint of the author's 2003 Handbook, updated as a result of research and travel in India, and mentioning Michel Garcia's eco recipes and recent DVD. The colour and lay-out of this slim volume are attractive with large step- by-step photographs. Following the briefest history of indigo and woad, there are three inter-related sections. The first describes a variety of resist techniques mainly belonging to Japanese shibori: pleating, folding, stitching, binding, clamping and paste resist. All apply to fabric dyeing with a single paragraph only on yarns and no mention of ikat, despite a magnificent image of a Japanese ikat kimono. The second section deals with vat preparation and dyeing, each step illustrated by detailed photographs in numbered sequence. The zinc metal dust and lime vat is the one favoured by the author and recommended for its flexibility and reliability over time. The differences between protein and cellulose fibres in indigo dyeing are carefully stressed. The third section suggests some projects: a tea cosy, a cushion, a couple of simple jackets. The detailed instructions are intended to be followed to the letter to replicate the models given, rather than be inspirational. While novice dyers may be reassured by such prescriptive instructions throughout, other readers may find the picture book approach simplistic. In sharing her long experience with authority and confidence, the author passes on some valuable tips, such as the necessity of using twice as much natural indigo as synthetic for the same colour. But one may think that she has also reduced indigo dyeing's complexity and mystery. * Journal for Weavers, Spinners & Dyers * Sep/Oct 12 Vivien Prideaux's book on working with indigo is a comprehensive resource for anyone interested in using the famous blue pigment. Prideaux walks the reader through every step of the process - including descriptions of shibori techniques that can be used when preparing the fabric. Her instructions are clear, with plenty of photographs. Instructions for several simple projects are also included. * Handwoven * July 12 This book is a very comprehensive guide to all the different types of Indigo Dyeing that can be done. From reading the book, you quickly understand that it is not something that you could undertake in an afternoon with pots and pans lying around in the cupboard; in fact, the most effective method that Vivien Prideaux has found involves a big plastic container and 20 litres of water. There is also a fair amount of serious chemical involvement, and plenty of protective clothing. It struck me that you would need to be fairly committed to undertaking this type of dyeing and be willing to use the right equipment even before you get started. Having said that, the book itself is a very full and informative guide. The history of the process, the different fibres and indigo dyes are all explained fully, and it is a very easy read. The instructions for dyeing (there are 3 different dye VATS to choose from) are set out with lots of photographs and instructions of how to prepare your fabric, and there are plenty of wonderful pictures of finished cloth, which would even tempt me despite knowing how much work it is to get there. There are even a couple of projects (ie cushion, tea cosy, scarf) to get you using your new collection of fabulous fabric. I think it would be a suitable book for those who are familiar (or have dabbled with) the process before and want to move to the next level. * catchacrumpsey.blogspot.co.uk *
