Diana Gipson is a fiber artist and teacher whose love of sewing began at an early age. After raising a family, she returned to college and graduate school where she was introduced to the Japanese design techniques of shibori stitching, fold and clamp, and pole wrapping. Hand-stitching on silk immediately became the predominant focus of her fiber art. She has continued to create shibori wall art and clothing, as well as teaching design and hand-dyeing workshops. Since moving to Port Townsend and then to Bainbridge Island from Boise, Idaho, where she taught art at Boise State, her shibori work has been shown locally in galleries and exhibitions, and her shibori clothing has been exhibited in P.T. Wearable Art Shows. She recently designed and executed shibori-stitched and dyed coordinated vestments for the Episcopal Church in Port Townsend.
