Botanical and Rust Dyed Scarves
March 4 & 5, 2015

Wander a magical garden path of silk and velvets, finding respite in flowers, water, shade and beauty. This class is a journey through a garden of your own creation to wear when you need the soft embrace of Mother Nature.

Fabric pieces are laid on the table, littered with fallen leaves, bygone rose petals, neglected rusty relics of iron and copper, perhaps sprinkled with tea or marigolds.  Bundles of nature are wrapped, bound, and steamed then left to transcend and create magic.

We will experiment with eucalyptus, roses, iron, copper and rust on different types of fabrics, ribbon, & doilies.  The scarves will mostly involve hand sewing but machines will be available if needed.

Silk and cotton scarf blanks will be dyed, ready to embellish to your hearts desire or leave as is. You must be prepared to smell the heady aroma of eucalyptus and onion skins steaming and be open to the surprise transformation of the dye process. 

For more info and sign up here!

March 6

"Affirmation Scarves"
We will dye paint ribbon and fabric strips, rubber stamp images and/or words on muslin fabric strips, adding lace and yarns to create this scarf using water soluble stabilizer and sewing them all together using straight stitching.

For more info and to sign up go here!
