Devorah Green has been making kumihimo necklaces and bracelets for 15 years and is presenting a workshop to make a bracelet and necklace using this technique. This class will be appropriate for all skill levels and no prior experience is necessary.
The class is tentatively planned to be presented in two parts. On Sunday, October 23rd, we will make and hopefully finish a satin cord bracelet, with a beaded center. This will prepare us for the following Sunday, October 30th and Monday, the 31st where we will make a necklace, using c-lon cord and teardrop beads as a focal point. We will be using foam discs.
Devorah graciously won’t be charging for her time, only for materials, which will be $15 for the 23rd and $25 for the 30th and 31st. Workshop will run from 10 AM to 2PM all three days. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot and for location information.
Roxanne Eklund will be hosting participants for a 1-day workshop about making, maintaining, and using a banana indigo vat.
Workshop will cover how to make a banana indigo vat, how to keep it “alive”, proper storage and continuous use of the vat, preparations for successful dyeing in indigo and demonstrations and examples of various techniques for making patterns for dyeing on fabric.
Participants may bring materials to dye, including natural fabric or yarn. At the end participants will learn how to finish and complete this dyeing process. Other indigo dye vats will be presented or discussed. A resource list and instructions will be included.
Workshop will be presented twice. Each session will last approximately 6-7 hours with breaks. Limited to 12 participants per session. Roxanne is graciously donating her time, so workshop fee will be for materials only. Please contact email@example.com to reserve your spot and for additional information.
