9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, June 27, 2015
White Violet Center for Eco-Justice at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, IN
Two classes are offered by Robin Edmundson on Saturday, June 27.
9 a.m.-noon: Color Basics and Harmonies.
1 p.m.–5 p.m.: Dyeing Animal and Protein Fibers
Color Basics and Harmonies:
Take the mystery out of putting colors together. Learn how to combine colors in beautiful ways from a master colorist. Topics will include basic color theory, using color tools, wheels and books, classic color combinations, etc. Spend time making your own color notebooks. Expect to get a lot of practice putting colors together and using your new skills. This class is indispensable for anyone who works with color–artists, quilters, knitters/crocheters, sewers, interior designers, even gardeners!
Dyeing Animal and Protein Fibers:
Explore the use of acid dyes to turn your stash of ‘boring’ protein yarns and fibers into designer yarns and fibers that you will be excited to knit, weave or spin. Using safe and mild acid dyes, students will learn how to put several colors onto a skein to make variegated yarns. Students may bring their own wool, mohair, alpaca, soy silk, or silk fibers and yarns to work with. White or light colors work best.
Cost: $65 per person, per class or $115 per person for BOTH classes. Lunch is included in the cost and is available from 12-1 p.m., please RSVP for lunch when registering.
