108.00

Saturday, July 20 | 9am-4pm | FULL

$108 (includes $25 for materials)

Teacher: Mary DeLano

Learn how to create vivid blue designs on cloth. We begin by twisting, folding, stitching, clamping, wrapping and compressing several kinds of fabric into a variety of shapes. Then we dip the fabric into a magical indigo vat to produce shapes ranging from pale blue to denim. Finally, we unwrap the dyed pieces to reveal stunning patterns – both simple and complex.

  • Students need to bring small sharp scissors and tight fitting dish washing gloves to class.

For $15 a catered lunch by Cafe Nomad will be provided. This includes a sandwich, chips, pickle and a cookie. We will have a variety of beverages to choose from as well. Please specify your food preferences during the next step if you are interested.

PLEASE NOTE: lunch is not included in the class price and you will be charged the day of the class.

Saturday, August 3 | 9am-4pm

(Sign up deadline: July 27)

$115 (includes $25 for materials)

Teacher: Mary DeLano

Capture leaf and flower images directly on paper and fabric using a process called eco printing. In this class, we will experiment with eco printing on fabric and paper. First, you will learn how to treat paper with a mordant that helps the plant pigments bind to paper. You will arrange plants on your mordanted papers and steam them to capture nature’s beauty. In the afternoon, you will take your learning from paper to fabric. Students will be provided with four mordanted pieces of fabric, including one silk scarf. You will leave with lots of prints that can be used for cards, framed pictures, or collages, as well as fabric that can be embroidered or turned into wall hangings.

Watch a video at marydelanofiberart.com to see what fun awaits you.

  • Students will need to scissors and a bucket of freshly cut plants.

  • Mary will e-mail you a few days before the class to suggest what plants to collect.

Swedosh Spoon Carving with Ian Trundy

Swedish Spoon Carving | July 27
from 65.00

Saturday, July 27 | 10am-3pm

(Signup Deadline: July 20)

$100 = $65 Tuition + $35 for knives

Teacher: Ian Trundy

Welcome to the wonderful world of slöjd!

Learn the fundamentals of carving creative and unique spoons that are sure to be cherished by all who use them. Class will cover material selection and wood related considerations, safety, tools and sharpening, techniques and tricks, and finishing. In short, you should leave with everything you need to know to start your own creative journey.

There is a class materials fee of $35 to cover a hook knife and a straight slöjd knife for students and all other materials, wood, and sharpening equipment will be provided. However, if students prefer to purchase their own straight slöjd knife and hook knife the fee shall be waived. I personally suggest looking at Morakniv or Beavercraft knives, both found on Amazon.com. These make good beginner knives and aren’t too expensive. Both are pictured.

For $15 a catered lunch by Cafe Nomad will be provided. This includes a sandwich, chips, pickle and a cookie. We will have a variety of beverages to choose from as well. Please specify your food preferences during the next step if you are interested.
