Natural Dye Workshop with Why Knot Fibers

Out of stock



Each day (Saturday, August 5th and Sunday, August 6th) Kat and Claire will be leading an all-day intensive dye workshop, where 24 participants (12 on each day) will receive focused, hands-on instruction for dyeing yarn with dyestuffs that are grown and foraged right on the farm, including willow, madder, goldenrod and indigo. Workshop participants will gather, prepare and dye their own yarn, breaking for a family-style, farm-fresh lunch prepared by farmer and foodie Jess Piskor of Birch Point Farm. The lunch will feature an in-season, vegetable-heavy menu, with locally raised meat, as well as vegan options. Coffee and water will be available in a steady stream throughout the day. (Because who can create without caffeine?!?) Each participant will be given a goody bag that includes two skeins of Michigan-grown yarn to dye; more yarn (for those seeking larger projects) will be available for purchase at the farm.

This class is perfect for all skill levels–no previous dye experience is necessary.

Lottery signups for the class will open on Saturday, July 15th, from 9 am to 2 pm EST. To enter the lottery drawing, you must “purchase” a spot by adding this item to your cart. PLEASE include your phone number in the specified field–this is the ONLY way we will contact you for payment if your name is drawn. (You will not be charged for the class until we have confirmed that you have secured a spot.) We will use a random number generator to assign each customer a number and chose our winners. There are 24 available tickets–12 on Saturday, 12 on Sunday. Please let us know in the ‘Notes to Seller’ section at checkout if you absolutely cannot attend one session or another; we will do our best to accommodate your preference (Saturday or Sunday) but please note there are only 12 spots for each day. When we announce our winners, we will call each winner to notify you that you’ve won a spot in the class. You will have exactly 24 hours to call the shop to pay for your class. If we haven’t heard from you in 24 hours, you will lose your spot and we will randomly draw the next person from the lottery.

There are 24 tickets available, 12 each for Saturday and Sunday. Tickets will be available by lottery drawing; the lottery drawing begins at 9 am on Saturday, July 15th and one lucky winner will be attending the workshop FREE. Winners will be announced on Monday, July 17th. The workshop will be one full day–8 hours in length–includes morning coffee and snacks, a family-style farm-fresh lunch, a goody bag that includes two skeins of yarn, all materials for dyeing and is $125. You will leave the workshop with 2 skeins of damp, dyed yarn.
