Dyeing to Stitch
Join me for a laid-back two part workshop celebrating colour, creativity and hand stitching. In this class we will combine the art of ice dying with simple embroidered messages to create stunning and unique wall hoops. The first class will be spent on the dying process and learning some beginner embroidery techniques. In class two you will take your dyed fabric and use it as the foundation for a piece of embroidered art.
With a fine artist’s sense of colour, a problem-solver’s sense of design, and a tree-hugger’s commitment to sustainability, Linnet Finley of Linnet Bird Designs offers soft, colourful, innovative products for kids, simple yet ingenious patterns for makers, and patient, joyful, empowering classes for those who want to develop their own sewing and handwork practice. Finley comes from a long line of textile artists and handworkers, and though she flirted with musical theatre, and detoured into environmental studies, she has arrived at a way to marry all her loves into one. Linnet Bird Designs is for those who prioritize locally handmade goods, and who look for a thoughtful approach to making.
