Retreat wraps up at 4pm.

Fiber Dyeing Workshop   $55.00

Hands on workshop on dyeing.  Acid-heat set dyes for protein fibers (animal wool and silk) will be used to create your own unique braid.  Participants will be hands on thru the entire process.  Color blending and application methods will be emphasized keeping in mind the final intention of spun yarn.  Four ounces of wool top will be provided, feel free to bring an additional 4 oz of roving or top for more experimentation. Bring your creativity and an old shirt or apron.

Workshop will be facilitated by Jenny Wilson-Welder, who has been fearlessly knitting, processing fleece, spinning and dyeing for some time on her woodsy home near Boone.

Her projects can be seen on Facebook by following Rabbit Patch Fibers.
