I am busy these summer days preparing to share my two-day Indigo Dye Play Retreat Workshop at the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning. Our Centre is steps away from the Lake Ontario Waterfront shoreline and is certainly an inspiration for students coming to enjoy learning and creating with our Resident Artists and instructors.
I have planned a fun-filled opportunity for you to come and enjoy an opportunity to learn about working with friends in our Community of Fibre Artists and those who are learning the art of creating with Natural Dyes (we will be using Jacquard Natural Indigo in this workshop weekend).
Mark your calendars and visit the Eventbrite link above to join me for these two days as our students will dye their pre-scoured cloth (2 metres of the beautiful white cotton lawn I use in all of my dyeing work will be provided to each student) or yarns of their choice with INDIGO dye the first day.
On Day Two, students will enjoy time and space for creating new artwork at their own tables and with their cloth or yarns that were created on day one. A supplies list for what you need to bring for the workshop weekend will be supplied with confirmed registration. Sewing machines and related accessories including rotary cutting tools, scissors, and threads are needed. (or stitch by hand - your choice)
Hope you will join me as we share two great creative days together... dye play is exciting and learning the many various techniques for folding, clamping, tying, and stitching designs for your samples. The fun of dipping your cloth into the dye vats is a valuable skill.
On Day Two, we will find students creating a new piece of their own original artwork... or perhaps a small garment or other items like Jornal covers, home decor items of your choice.
Seats are LIMITED to 10 participants and so, please don't wait! Do contact me with questions and I look forward to seeing YOU soon.
