2009 Summer Dyeing Workshop!

Yup! It's time to get ready for the 2009 Summer Dyeing Workshop Sponsored by Quilts By Barb!

Once again it will be held a Lapacek's Orchard in Poynette, WI. Hopefully we will have a wonderful and gorgeous day for dyeing and will be able to do it out in the sun and on the lawn...otherwise we'll be in the spacious shed.

All of the details on the dying day can be found at: http://merr.com/users/lapacek/dyeing_day.htm or just go to http://www.lapaceksorchard.com/ and click on the '2009 summer dyeing workshop' link.

I'm going to use this blog to tell you a little bit about how the day actually goes, show you examples of things you can accomplish in one day, post pictures of quilts we have made from our hand-dyed fabrics, give you ideas for clothing dyeing options, and hopefully we'll hear from some people that have attended the workshop in the past!

Today I'll tell you about what you can expect in the morning (I'm hoping Diane will comment to let me know if I am accurate or forgetting something).

When you arrive at the orchard you will sign in and pick up your 'kit' for the day. We will have a small 'shop' set up with more pfd fabric, articles of clothing, dyeing supplies for you to take home, etc, that you will be able to look through as you eat your muffin or donut (not sure what we'll have just yet...I'll keep you posted).
Once everyone arrives we do a quick explanation of the day, show you examples of what you're going to dye, and what you can make with the fabric that you dye once it's completed.
We start the day off by teaching the color family technique. We like to have people that have never dyed before to start with this because it teaches some basic techniques and creates some fabulous fabric. One thing I want to stress about this workshop is that nothing is set in stone...you can participate in whatever lessons you want. One of us will be able to help you if you would like to try something different or have a plan as to what you want to dye.
Tune in for more info on the upcoming workshop next week!
