class offerings sept - dec 2008

Hello, everyone! I wanted to put up class information from Gale's Art studio so if you are NOT interested in my FABULOUS classes....stick your fingers in you ear and go "LALALALA" for this entry :>)

email is galesart@mindspring.com or 404-457-4015 . I am in ATLANTA area.

Sept 12 , 13, 25, 26 "Acid Dye without Tears" 10:30 to 4 pm $85 4 students

(last chance this year to take this class)
In this class you learn the basics of color mixing and you will take home ½ a pound of your own original hand painted fibers when done. You can choose to dye 8 oz Blueface roving OR 8 oz of wool yarn OR a 4 oz/4 oz combination of roving and yarn. Also included with the class fee are 6 bottles of premixed Acid dyes solutions in primary colors for you to play with at home, along with instructions for small batch color graduations and Gale’s down and dirty color test system. Many of my students have time to dye extra materials that they bring from home as well as the fiber provided.

A one day class takes raw, dyed wool and shows you how to create a wonderful, felted scarf. It looks complicated but it isn’t. Best of all, it will make a wonderful gift during the holiday season. Instruction and the creation of one scarf should take about 3 to 4 hours with the free option of after class “play” time should you wish to stay in the studio and create a second or possibly third scarf. Wool and felting supplies for the first scarf are included in class fee.

This one day class is devoted to the design development of a large piece of decorative flat felt. Students will learn how to make pre-felt sheets for felt inlay as well as adding interesting artistic details with silk and nylon fibers. The finished, colorful flat felt is suitable for a small purse, a knitting needle case, a book cover or many other things. The first flat felt should be completed in the time allotted but students are encouraged to stay for “play” time to create additional gift items.

Your classes sound so fantastic! I wish I wasn't on the other side of the world. I'd definitely come to the dyeing and scarf making ones otherwise. :)

I love your etsy store too, I might have to place an order soon.
