Shibori is a Japanese word for wring or squeeze. It is used to describe techniques where a resist is used to leave a memory on cloth. One example of this technique is a glorious shawl, crafted from 7 metres of silk shantung and decorated with garnets, featured in the exhibition.

Sheys' handwoven lacy jackets were inspired by her extensive travels in Thailand. Purchasing a small loom, she wove 150 - 185 squares for each jacket as she travelled. The jackets have been widely exhibited (and collected) in Japan and Australia. The smaller of the jackets on show was selected for The Lace For Fashion Exhibition at The Powerhouse Museum, Sydney.
Congratulations to Barbara on what promises to be a feast of colour, technique and skilfully and lovingly made wearable and decorative textile pieces.
