FIBER DYEING WORKSHOP-March 3, 2019

FIBER DYEING WORKSHOP: Katherine Smith (Lollipop Acres Fiber) is holding a 5.5 hour fiber dyeing workshop, Saturday, March 2. From 9:30 am to 3 pm (1/2 hr lunch).

During this class you will learn how to mix, prepare, store, troubleshoot, apply, set and dry protein fiber (roving) using colorfast Acid Dyes. We will discuss non-acid dyeing and various techniques to achieve different results for spinning, wet and needle felting and more. At the end of class, you will walk away with 8 ounces of a variegated merino fiber and 8 ounces of gradient merino (over an $80 retail value).

The class is $95 and will accommodate up to 5 fiber enthusiasts! The class is held at Chino Valley, Arizona where I also raise Shetland Sheep, goats, various ducks and chickens – a veritable petting zoo. All materials are provided (just wear grubby clothes and/or bring an apron) and your own bagged lunch.
