    Don’t know what to do with that beautiful piece of hand-dyed fabric? Maybe you have a vintage table runner that needs a new life. How about that partial skein of yarn that isn’t enough for a project, but is too beautiful to toss? Discover the art doll as a means of creative expression for textile and fiber lovers. In this class we will learn the basics of constructing a stump doll. We will explore design principles, sources of inspiration, and methods for adapting various materials to create a beautiful one-of-a-kind figure. These figures will be constructed primarily of cloth, but mixed-media options will be discussed. A working sewing machine and basic sewing skills are required.

    In this hands on virtual tutorial and free weaving session we will learn how to construct basic tapestry looms from found and reused materials. Each participant will select a loom to create, and we will weave together with traditional and untraditional materials. During our 2 hours together, we will also practice a few tapestry weaving techniques, from warping to basic weave structures, to creating shapes and patterns with yarn. This class will focus on the meditative and restorative aspects of hand weaving and give participants the basic support needed to create your own freestyle weavings at home.

    Registration: Members $30, Non-members $40

    Instructor: Nica Rabinowitz 

    Materials students should have: wooden picture frame, hammer, nails, scissors, cardboard, paper plate, twigs, yarn/unusual materials, ruler, pencil

    The Spinning Study Group's purpose is to share the joy of handspinning. We welcome anyone from the professional spinner to those who are just beginning - all share a love of learning. Monthly meetings cover a range of topics, including different techniques of hand spinning and fiber processing, how to use handspinning tools, and other topics as determined by the group. We will conduct a breed study, spinning and plying samples of various types of wool, mohair, alpaca, llama and rabbit raised in our Blue Ridge Mountains region. Sample donations are encouraged.

    Whenever possible, our members volunteer to demonstrate spinning at local events and educational outreach programs. 

    This is not a learn-to-spin group, but we welcome those new to spinning to come a half-hour early (from 6 - 6:30pm) to get acquainted and request some help. Our meetings will be held in person at the Local Cloth studio, and members who wish to attend virtually will receive a Zoom link.

    This is a virtual class which will take part on zoom. You will receive a copy of the recording which you can rewatch at anytime.

    “Shibori is the simple yet sophisticated Japanese ancestor of tie-dyeing, newly popular with many modern adaptations. We will use straight-forward, immediate hands-on methods of clamping, tying, stitching, and wrapping resists on silk fabrics, then immerse them in vibrant fiber-reactive and acid dye baths to layer rich colors and gorgeous patterns. We will dye silk in silk-specific baths and cotton, silk, and other fabrics in plant-specific baths and more fiber-general Pre-Reduced Indigo bath. Students may bring blank fabric, scarves, t-shirts, apparel pieces, and household items to dye and finish in this fun and fast-paced workshop.

    ‘This one-day workshop is a great way to get you started dyeing and to make lots of holiday presents as well as adding pattern and personality to your wardrobe and home. These baths are also reusable, so you can continue playing and dyeing on your own after the workshop ends. I have structured this class with some work time, so I encourage you to get all the materials and work along with me through the day. However, since you are working from home, it is okay to actively observe (watch, take notes, ask questions) for reference for future work on your own.”

    We will work with dipping in 3 different dyebaths:

    Cold Water Pro MX Dye, mix in small buckets

    Hot Water Acid Dye, cook in cook pot on stove or hotplate

    Cold Water Pre-reduced Indigo, mix in bucket


    All dyes and chemicals are available at Earth Guild in Asheville, NC, at www.dharmatrading.com (California), and at www.prochemicalanddye.com (Massachusetts). I recommend buying smaller quantities to try, like 2-8 ounce jars of dye powder; you won’t need more than that. You can get vinegar at the grocery store, and while soda ash (sodium carbonate) is available from the dye suppliers, you can also find it in larger quantities (labeled as PH-Up) in the pool care/ hot tub care section of home improvement store. Both vinegar and soda ash are dye ACTIVATORS needed to make the dye bond with the fabric, so be sure to get them- they are NECESSARY to the dyeing process. Thiox is additionally NECESSARY for the Indigo dyebath.


    Silk and Cotton:
    For acid dyes, we will use silk fabrics. For Indigo, we will use silk, cotton, and other natural fiber fabrics. You can dig around for scraps, old fabrics, boring t-shirts, as well as buy scarf and apparel blanks to print. If you get them, you will easily dye at least 4 silk scarves in this workshop. You can even experiment with folding and dyeing notecards and paper. Let’s use what you have! Fabrics and blanks labeled PFD (Prepared for Dyeing) won’t need to be prewashed, but if you purchase fabric like muslin or other yardage from the fabric store, I recommend prewashing it with Synthrapol to remove dirt, sizing, glues, etc that can inhibit the dye process. 



    MATERIALS


    General:

    Notebook and Pen

    Pencil

    Apron and Gloves (I like long dishwashing gloves, not disposable)

    Scissors or thread snips

    Spritzer bottle of water or nearby faucet


    Dyes and Chemicals:

    Pro MX Fiber Reactive Dye: 1-2 primary colors (blue, red, yellow)

    Sabraset/Lanset Acid Dyes: 1-2 colors you like (black, brown, purple, teal, etc.)

    Pre-reduced Indigo, 1 packet

    Thiox (Thiourea dioxide), about 4 ounces 

    Synthrapol (or generic Prosapol), detergent for working with dyes, about 4 ounces 

    White Vinegar, at least 1 quart 

    Soda Ash (sodium carbonate), at least 8 ounces 


    Dyebaths:

    Use old utensils, spoons, cups, buckets, bowls and cook pots, or thrift-shop for them, but NEVER INTERMIX your food-prep kitchenware with dye prep tools.

    Small cup for mixing (like yogurt cup)

    Spoons for mixing

    Stirring stick
    MX dyebath: small buckets or plastic cups (like dairy containers)

    Acid dyebath: cook in cookpot on stove or hotplate

    Pre-Reduced Indigo dyebath: 2-3-5 gallon bucket


    Shibori Mechanics: What you will use to resist the dyes:


    Tying and Stitching:
    Roll of string, twine, yarn, etc.

    Spool or cones of thread, great to use up old thread

    At least 1 hand sewing needle- I like long, sharp, thin, with big eye for easier threading

    Optional- needle threader


    Clamping:

    Spring clamps (recommend a variety bag at home improvement store)

    C-clamps- a few if you have them

    Clothespins- a few if you have them

    Office Binder Clamps- a few if you have them

    Thin wooden, scrap cardboard, metal shapes: blocks, washers, lids, that will get clamped 


    Arashi (Storm) Pole Wrapping:

    At least 1 empty wine bottle (recommend straight sides, not tapered) or other tall, straight-sided bottle

    Roll of string, twine, yarn, etc.



    Optional recommended resource books 

    (I like but you don’t need for class):

    “Shibori: The Inventive Art of Japanese Shaped Resist Dyeing” Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada et al
    “Shibori on Silk” Karren Brito

    “Memory on Cloth: Shibori Now” Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada
