SHIBORI MINI

Shibori thrives under constraint. Here, international artists showcase their talents in miniature, confined to a 30x30x30cm space.

Consider this small 30x30x30cm (roughly 12”x12”x12”) cube a space to demonstrate your most innovative methods of textile manipulation. With an emphasis on diversity of thought and method, we encourage you to create surprising combinations, interactive elements, and engaging or even radical new interpretations of shaped-resist. Evoke material "memory," a record of processes which shape and morph, to illustrate the myriad transformative possibilities of shibori.
