Shibori, Shape Resist Dyeing
Guest Speaker | Doshi
Shape Resist Dyeing
Shibori is the Japanese word for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dyeing.The word comes from the verb root shiboru, "to wring, squeeze, press." Rather than treating cloth as a two-dimensional surface, it is given a three-dimensional form by folding, crumpling, stitching, pleating, and twisting. The designs created all share a softness of outline and a spontaneity of design. This is shibori’s special magic, made possible by exploiting the beauty of the fortuitous things that happen when dye enters shaped cloth. Shaped resist techniques includes numerous processes practiced throughout the world, including Indonesia, India, Japan, Africa and America.
In Doshi’s 35 year design career she has created costumes for Theatre, Dance, Ice-Skating, Stunt Shows and TV. During that time, she worked across the United States in various venues, including Shakespeare festivals, Regional Theatres, Sound Stages, Theme Parks and Ice Rinks. She has received numerous honors and awards in design including a Themed Entertainment Award for Excellence in Costume Design for Waterworld at Universal Studios Hollywood.Doshi’s costume design is identified by her creation of the fabric for the costumes through dyeing, printing, discharging and otherwise manipulating the fabric surface. Her work in color and texture is an integral part of her design.In 1999, Doshi took her experience in theatre and fabric into the fiber art arena and began creating wall pieces and wearable art.Spontaneity hasbeenrecurring theme in fiber artist Doshi’s life and it has found vivacious expression in her collections of garments. She combines an exploration of shaped resist dyeing with a striking color palette to create work that pulsates with energy.Doshi has been honored to create several solo exhibitions. Her fiber work has been seen in juried and invitational shows at the Mingei International Museum and Visions Art Museum in San Diego, The Brewhouse Arts Center in England, Palos Verdes Art Center, The International Shibori Symposium in Oaxaca, and Convergence.Doshi is also a professor of Costume Design at California State University, Long Beach, a leading University in Theatre, where she supervises a graduate MFA program, teaching courses in costume design, patterning, tailoring, millinery, and dyeing.
