India Flint ::: workshop on Lopez Island, WA, September 2013



It is with such great pleasure that I make this announcement !
So long in the planning, over a year of excited anticipation (and much itching to spill the beans),
I can at last welcome India Flint ... 
coming to Lopez Island on September 14, 15, and 16
to teach

Wayfarer's Windfall Cloth

Author of Eco Colour [2008] and Second Skin [2011], this delightful self-proclaimed wanderer will generously share her extensive knowledge of "eco-printing," a simple and
beautiful natural dye process that employs no harmful chemicals and is the focus of her life's work.
After creating numerous dye samplers, we will piece them together with gentle stitching 
to form an exquisite constructed textile that records the imagery of local flora
and is expressive of the hand of the maker.

Due to an overwhelming amount of interest locally which has surpassed even
my wildest imaginings,
this workshop is already 
FULL.

I am beyond amazed
and now unable to open up registration to everyone (the initial intention of this post).
I am sorry to disappoint anyone who might have wanted to attend.
Still, I believe in silver linings ...

~ workshop location in a private garden setting ~

so here's what will happen next: 
I'd like to maintain a "Waiting List" for this workshop so that anyone interested can add their name
in case of cancellations.
September is a long way off ... life changes for folks, plans often don't work out as we hoped ...
and I am expecting a cancellation, or two or three, because that's just what seems to happen.

Want to know more?  Would you like to read the full workshop description?
I'm happy to send a copy of the flyer with all the pertinent details.
Just write to me ... click  email  over there in the sidebar
and I'll send the pdf to you, pronto.
