About Linda Senechal
I produce hand-painted or hand-dyed, hand-woven wearable fiber art, primarily using silk and bamboo. My work is Woven Shibori, a resist-dyeing technique where I weave the pattern threads as a supplemental weft in the fabric. Then those threads are pulled and tied off, compressing the material to provide a resist before being hand-painted or immersion-dyed. After dyeing, the pattern threads are removed, exposing a unique printed Shibori pattern on the woven surface.
