Shibori Stitch Weekend with Jay Rich

From Leila Guilbert:

This is a fun relaxing weekend to get started on your stitching for the 7th Annual Indigo Dye Workshop with Jay Rich scheduled for September 27-30, 2012. You can bring poles to wrap (Leila has a few you could borrow), and your own fabrics and yarn.

There will be fabric for purchase (linen, silk wool, cotton, rayon, bamboo, blends, etc.) if needed. Jay will be doing his own stitching and wrapping, but he will assist when needed and offer suggestions. Other supplies to bring include scissors, wrapping cords, needle, thread, thimble, masking tape, etc.

When: March 23-25, 2012 (Friday-Sunday)

Where: Flavia's Place B&B Artist Retreat
             Mitchell, South Dakota

Time: 6:30 p.m. Friday - 4:00 p.m. Sunday

Cost: Free for the instruction and participation (Participants split the cost for Jay's meals, approx $5 each)

Lodging: $20.00 per night (includes breakfast)

Meals: Potluck Friday night, lunch and dinner is on your own

You can attend any time that fits your schedule during the weekend, either for the entire time, a full day, a half day, whatever will work for you.

There could be a bit of distraction if we want to make clay buttons using shibori textures. Jay has some stains for clay and could mix them with porcelain if anyone has an interest to do this (don't we have fun?). There may be a small charge to cover any cost of materials.
