Pleased to announce ... India Flint returns to Lopez Island


Workshop plans have been afoot for some time now
with a pre-assembled cast of characters awaiting the sewing tables and cauldrons ...
but as life does, it got in the way for two
and now there are spaces in this September's gathering,
 perhaps for you?


'the wayfinder's wander jacket'
with India Flint
September 23 ~ 25, 2015
Lopez Island, WA, USA

~ Patsy's Garden Shed Studio, Lopez Island & sweet Isla, having a wander ~

**** UPDATE 2/24 **** CLASS FULL, thank you to all who enquired!

Enjoy three days with India on lovely Lopez Island, sharing stories and stitching
a beautiful bundle-dyed hand-sewn multi-pocketed and hooded jacket
using fabrics gleaned from pre-used garments
and embellished with silk and wool scraps.
The magic of the Salish Sea, the use of scrap metals
along with a wide array of bio-regional dye sources
~ windfallen leaves, weeds, & bounty from local gardens ~
will influence the dye outcomes.

Nourishing gluten-free vegetarian lunches will be provided each day
including delicious soups made by India ...
who is a deft & creative hand around a kitchen cauldron as well ! 

For all the particulars, or to answer any questions,

Note:  This is a  rural   location involving multiple
[sometimes complicated]
means of transport.

  1. christi you are the lucky one live on such a place with Isla and your family , twice to work with India this year , could it be better , interesting work you are doing this year , tell me if she are comming again

    1. Oh wow I may have to seriously consider this. I've been to Lopez Island before so I know what the travel entails!

    2. Thank you, Bodil - yes, I will.

    3. and India .... wouldn't dream of it !

  2. What an absolutely gorgeous location!! We have vacationed on Orcas Island before and taken the ferry over to San Juan Island but never ventured to Lopez. I think that I just might have to make a trip one of these days. Do you have any suggestions of great places to stay if we do?

    1. You'd be spoiled for choice, Teri ... take a gander via a Google search for Lopez Island accommodations - there are many lovely options year round.

  3. oh how nice that it will happen again!

    1. True that. Looking forward to it immensely.

  4. What a shame this is happening so far away. It sounds and looks wonderful! Thank you for visiting me and becoming my latest follower. I have so enjoyed looking at your posts and admiring your stunning images. I have added you to my feedly contacts so I don't miss any more! Sarah x

    1. Very pleased to have "met" you out here, Sarah, and that you've popped over for a visit to my place ;>] Thanks so much for the lovely message.
