Limited Spaces for "Spectrum Dyeing" Class
Laurie and I have finally ironed out the details for her wonderful dyeing class scheduled for September 24th here at the farm. I, for one, am hoping some of her wicked-awesome color sense rubs off on me, if I take this class. For those of you who have been asking, here's the scoop:
We have room for eight folks who'd like to learn how to dye roving so that it spins up gorgeous like your favorite Noro yarn. For $25, you'll get Laurie's expert instruction, our pre-mixed Jacquard dyes, and 8 oz. of yummy Blue Faced Leicester roving, pre-soaked and ready to go. We'll work under the shade of the trees in my back yard, so pray for great weather.
We'll begin at 10 AM or so, with a demo from Laurie about how she sets up her wool, her colors, and her heating, and then we'll turn you loose to try her method, or do some handpainting in your own style. Because space is limited, I'll need to know that you plan to come, with a pretty firm RSVP. Paying ahead will guarantee you a spot. (We heart checks or Paypal to ctelisak at juno dot com).
In the meantime, the 24th is a regular LRB spin/knit day, and the barn will be open for your crafting pleasure, if dyeing doesn't suit your whim. As usual, the coffee will be on and the company will be spectacular.
