Embellished Shabori

 

My Grandmother left me an 1850 art journal with amazing etchings. Several drawings later and a digital play, I wanted to screen print the image to create what I will call an Embellished Shabori.

Embellished Shabori – Mixed Media Art Canvas; 2013

Embellished Shabori - mixed media canvas

I started with shabori onto a length of cotton fabric, screen printed this in several stages then embellished the piece with embroidery. Before the art cloth was attached to the canvas, I extended the printing to the edges. Colours are mainly a beautiful butter yellow and aqua. Other colours like orange and purple tones also feature.

The canvas measures 47 x 24 x 1.5 inches / 120 x 24 x 4 cm.

It comes ready to hang including appropriate hooks.

Available for purchase on Etsy
