With my colleague , Susan Schultz at Decor Tours, we’ve arranged for a special series of hands-on natural dyeing and weaving classes for this Spring—but spots are extremely limited!
Working with fiber entrepreneur and natural dye specialist Kacie Lynn, we’ve organized workshops in natural dyeing, block printing, indigo dyeing, shibori techniques, frame loom weaving, sashiko stitching and so much more! You’ll walk away with your own set of dyed swatches, a sample natural dye kit, and finished products, in addition to having a great time learning about these traditional processes.
Join us at the Fiber Farm in southern Tennessee, a fantastic way to start or finish your time in Nashville (if you’re going to IWCE) or, if not, come “dye” with us anyway. It’s an amazing experience!
Available sessions are:
Wednesday, March 6: Full-day natural dyeing and indigo workshop, with over-dyeing, stitch resists, block printing and shibori techniques. Lunch included.
Thursday, March 7: Full day frame loom weaving and sashiko stitching—create your own samplers, mini-tapestry and go home with your projects, plus a mini loom. Lunch included.
Sunday March 10: Half-day afternoon natural dyeing and block printing session
Monday, March 11: repeat of Wednesday, March 6, natural dyeing and indigo
Tuesday, March 12: repeat of Thursday, March 7, frame loom weaving and sashiko
Each session limited to 12 people. Sunday is $230 and all other sessions are $380. Interested in more than 1 session; ask us about our bunded pricing. (If we have enough people coming from Nashville, we’ll arrange for transportation to/from.)
Want to know more? Email us or call 212 352 9968 or 630 207 0357. If you’re on the fence, we’ve got testimonials from our Provence group about how fantastic a day of dyeing can be—and we’re happy to share!
Dye-ing to see you this spring! (We’ve got soooo many of these puns we’re dye-ing to use…)
