Join local artist Daisy McClellan on Saturday December 11th from 11a-1p at Redux for her *NEW* Hand Weaving with Natural Dyes Workshop. In this 2 hour class you’ll learn the fundamentals of dying with natural elements as well as how to weave on a handloom. Our finished products make beautiful pot holders and trivets to gift this holiday. We’ll talk specifically about how to dye our cotton loops in a non-toxic and sustainable manner using easily forgeable plants. What we learn can be applied to all plant based fibers for your future creative endeavors. You’ll get comfortable with the meditative practice of hand weaving and quickly find that this traditional method will ground and center you. Everyone will go home with one finished woven piece as well as loops that we dye in class for you to create more at home. The handloom is yours to keep and is included in the price.
Beginners are welcome – no experience is required. All materials provided.
Ages 18+ only (please email Redux for inquiries about classes for children).
Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting a little messy or bring an apron if you have one.
