Natural Dye & Weaving Workshop

at the Sou’wester Lodge

with instructor Brooke Shepherd of Seawater Studio

Winter Solstice: Celebrate the return of the light!

Together in this workshop we will celebrate the cyclical and ever-changing seasonal offerings that nature generously provides in order to produce naturally dyed fabric and yarns.

Sat Dec 19 11am – 3pm

After a nature walk along the beach, where we will be gathering materials for our dye baths, we will prepare our fabrics and yarns using seawater as a mordant. Plants, shells, wood, old fishing hooks, most anything we find along the seashore will be used as a dye, resist, or decoration of your one-of-a-kind fabric.

Sun Dec 20 10am – 12pm instruction and afterwards Open Studio

Weaving workshop! We will first go on a walk to gather items to weave into our mini-tapestries. You will learn the basic techniques of weaving on a small loom and we will incorporate themes of winter, darkness, and light as you learn to create plain weave, rya knots, and shapes with hand dyed yarn.

All supplies provided. Families are encouraged to participate together.

Suggested donation $15 – $20 for adults; $10 for kids.

Sign up for one day or both days of this workshop.
