- Shibori Techniques Explained
I have been lucky enough to take some of Sherry's shibori cuff classes in person, so I wasn't expecting to learn anything new from this one. In fact, it was the last one I viewed in the 4-video package I bought. Surprise! I still found some new tidbits from this video that made it worth watching.
If you've never made any jewelry using shibori silk, but want to learn, this is a must-view course. If you've dabbled in the technique but would like to learn more, it's also a video you should watch. And if you've done a lot of shibori designs (as have I), you'll still probably find some new ideas.
Sherry is just as wonderful in her videos as she is in person. Her willingness to share her designs and ideas in a way that's easy to understand is the hallmark of a great teacher. If you love Sherry's work, you will also thoroughly enjoy this video. (Posted on 12/12/2015)
