SAIPUA Fiber Series: DYEING - August 6

180.00

Instructor: Owyn Ruck, Co-founder and former director of the Textile Arts Center and current adjunct faculty at Parsons. 

Our Dyeing class is the second of a three part series that explores the cycles and relationships between plants, animals, the creative process and product. Our natural environment provides a vast array of color. This class will look at the relationship to these color sources, and using mostly materials from World’s End we will explore the science and art of dyeing fiber. Saipua yarn will be provided, as well as some other sample material -- or students who enrolled in the Spinning class may want to take the next step with their hand spun yarn and apply color. Students will walk away with dyed roving, a dyed skein of yarn, dyed sample fabrics, and recipes & resources for home.

Each class can stand alone, or be taken in succession-- following the fiber from World’s End sheep through processing, spinning, dyeing, and weaving. Refreshments will be served.

August 6, 2017 | Sunday from 1PM to 5PM

Limited to 15 participants; no experience or knowledge necessary. All materials provided.

Location: SAIPUA Studio, 177 Dwight St. Brooklyn

Tickets are final sale and non-refundable. Price includes 8.875% NY state sales tax.

Owyn was the co-founder and director of the Textile Arts Center in NYC. She is currently adjunct faculty at Parsons, and continues to lead textile-oriented workshops and retreats through SUCCURRO - a healing studio investigating creative energy as the source for personal and collective transformation.
