One last Missouri Dye Workshop at Hillcreek Fiber Studio: Saturday–Sunday, September 9-10, 2017.
This workshop has always been popular with students. In the two days we forage for several local dye-plants, and through the use of several mineral salts, will evoke over 50 color samples for students to take home, in every color of the rainbow. Dye-plants ripe and ready during this time of year include: walnuts, bidens, goldenrod, ironweed, pokeberries, elderberries, osage orange, and more. We will prepare both protein and cellulose fibers/fabrics with separate mordanting processes. Students will go home with file folders filled with samples on Cotton and Raw Silk fabrics plus Wool Roving for each dye. Contact Carol Leigh Brack-Kaiser at 573-874-2233 (or,1-800-TRI-WEAV (874-9328)) for more information or to register. Class fee $250. Deposit of $125 will hold a space for you. Class size is limited. Bed and Breakfast is available.
This workshop is at my Mother’s Hillcreek Fiber Studio, 7001 S Hillcreek Rd, Columbia, MO. Don’t miss this last opportunity!
We carry Carol Leigh Brack-Kaiser’s book here at the shop….autographed, of course. She wrote the book because she said she was never going to teach this workshop again!
Growing up in my mother’s fiber arts studio, I literally learned natural dyeing by osmosis. I was helping demonstrate at Heritage Festivals by the age of 13. Mom is such a fountain of knowledge, I will always be grateful for her guidance. You have one last chance to learn what you can from her, in her studio. After that, you’ll have to settle for coming to my studio to learn these things. I’ll do my best to impart the knowledge and spread the love of natural color!
