Dyeing to Stitch Retreat, 2020

Friday, March 20, 2020 - 10:00am to Sunday, March 22, 2020 - 4:00pm

 Sproule Studios is located at 358 Main Street, Fortuna, CA,  95540.

   Our last three day retreat was a big success, and people keep asking when the next one is. So, here is the information on the next event. We have changed it up a bit to keep things fresh and  interesting.

   This time around, our focus will be on Japanese Shibori Dyeing with Procion Dyes. Once the dyeing is done, we will move onto Color, Design, and Composition using the amazing fabrics we created as either a background, foreground, or both to create a wallhanging/art piece. The last day will be spent adding either hand or machine stitching to your piece. Most materials will be provided.

   We will do an in depth exploration of how I create my art. 

Please be sure to read the Cancellation Policy below before registering.

We will do an in depth focus on design and color as we work towards our goal of creating a phenomenal piece of fiber art.
