SUNDAY, OCTOBER 28TH
INTRODUCTORY CLASS / 1 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. / Levels: All
Indigo is one of the oldest and most magical of all the natural dyes. In this class you’ll learn to dye yarn which you’ll use in your punch needle project! A pattern will be provided and you’ll learn how to use the punch needle, how to create the correct size stitch with the needle, and options for finishing your project. In addition you are invited to bring a natural fiber blank (a garment, scarf, pillow case, etc.) to dye as well!
The dye vat, yarn and monk’s cloth for your project are included in the class fee. An Oxford Punch Needle ($39) and 14” No-Slip Hoop ($25) can be borrowed for use during the class and purchased after class if desired. Snacks as well as coffee, tea and punch (of the drinkable variety) will be served!
