Now with Even More Dyeing and Spinning!

Yes my dears, you heard right.

A second natural dyeing and spinning workshop is being added! The first one, being held from July 1st - 4th, filled quickly and there seems to be enough interest to organize a second workshop, same as the first in schedule and content, for the following weekend.

Here are some particulars:

Dates: Arrival for out-of-towners on Friday evening, July 8th. Welcoming reception at Full Tilt. Natural dyeing (and a little acid dyeing if there is time) on Saturday, July 9th. Film night on the 9th! Spinning on a spindle and the wheel on Sunday, July 10th. Farewell breakfast (and morning yoga) on the 11th.

Accommodations: There are several options available very close by, none costing more that $50/night.

Fees: The workshop fee is $150. This includes all materials (although people are welcome to bring their own yarn or fleece to dye if they prefer), vegetarian lunch and two snacks daily, plus morning yoga (suitable for beginners).

If you are interested or have questions, please email me at thehousemuseum(at)gmail.com. We will need a minimum enrollment of eight people to run the second workshop.

PS. In case you were wondering, the yarn pictured is spun from a BFL fleece handpainted by Lori at Capristrano Fiber Arts. It was spun on my second best friend, my Ashford Traveler, sport weight, a bit more than 400 yds.
