It has been a long time coming, due to me being the assistant builder, so I am pleased as punch to say: The Studio is Ready!
If you haven't made plans for this Saturday -- it's short notice, I know! -- come enjoy the Open House, it's 10-4.
And if you'd like a workshop, I'm offering a special workshop for just the cost of materials: Sun Dyeing. Paint a bandana or silk scarf with photosensitive dyes, then lay found objects on it for a unique creation. Bring your wheel, knitting, or favorite handwork to do while your item dries. We'll dye at 10 or at 2, and I am doing a demonstration at 1 for anyone who happens to stop by just to see it done.
The studio is at 290 Werner Road, Port Ludlow, Washington. Mapquest gives reasonable directions, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will tell you how the locals find it :-) If you have any questions, you can reach me at 360-582-0697.
The new studio means of course I've fired up the calender again:
I have plans through November, though it takes time to get them all up on the Calendar and Facebook -- so if you'd like to see the full list, email me and I will send the PDF brochure your way.
