Make Your Own Class

My studio classes are small [no more than four], so that each attendee gets plenty of individual attention.   This also makes it easy for me to offer special classes just for you and your friends.   Want to schedule a class dyeing silk scarves?  No problem!    Want a class on making soap?   Let's do one!   A class on intermediate spinning wheel techniques?   We'll get you all set up!   Beginning watercolor?   Grab your brushes!    

To schedule a closed class for just you and your group, I need a firm number of attendees so I can figure cost,  and prepayment before I can put it on my calendar. 

To schedule an open class, I need a paid commitment from at least two people. I will add the class to the website schedule and advertise so we can fill any open spots.  

General costs for a 4 person class [not including materials fees for certain classes]:  Half day $55/person;  Full day $100/person.     Exact costs will be figured after we discuss particulars.

Class: Natural Dyeing

Early autumn is the perfect natural dye season.  This is a full day class that will take you through the entire process of prepping, mordanting, and dyeing with 3 or 4 different natural dyes with alum as the mordant. This is a small class taught at my home studio of no more than 4 people.  Plenty of individual attention. Bring your skeins already washed, tied with figure-eights in at least 6 places, and labelled with your name on a tag on every skein.  Any fabric should be prewashed and labelled with your name.  You get the best colors on wool, alpaca and superwash wool.  Likely dyes [final list to be decided later]:  goldenrod, walnut, woad or indigo, brazilwood or cochineal.   We'll do 2 pots in the morning and 2 in the afternoon.  Always a lot of fun.

This is my favorite class to teach!   We start with a bit of formal color theory and then explore several different types of color harmonies using color wheels and other tools.  This is a small class taught at my home studio of no more than four people so you'll get a lot of individual attention.  Workshop includes a project consultation for each person.  Bring a project you have color questions about and we'll discuss it in depth and give you some workable options to get you back on track.
