Beyond the Blues

Merrymeeting Art Center 9 Main St, Bowdoinham, ME

This is an exhibit of traditional and contemporary Shibori textile art. Shibori is an ancient Japanese process of folding, clamping, twisting, stitching, plaiting fabric and compressing it before dying in indigo to resist the dye from entering certain parts of the fabric.
This creates a 3-D effect on a 2-D surface. There are hundreds of patterns and processes.
Beyond the Blues also offers textiles that demonstrate color blending with natural dyes and other dyes using Shibori techniques. There will be wall hangings, scarves, and home décor items for sale.

Hours: 10 am – 2 pm; Thursday, Friday and Saturday
