Ecobooks: Binding books, binding spells, & printing on paper with plants
SATURDAY, JANuary 19 2pm-5pm
Join Coco Villa in an ecobook making workshop at the Fiberhouse on January 19. Explore simple folding techniques to create your own pocket-sized books using freshly printed paper. We will be extracting texture and color from plants through several eco printing techniques. Eco printing involves heating water and plants in conjunction with natural fibers, resulting in whimsical patterns. There is no right way to go about it and everyone will have their own technique that works for them. Experimentation is at the heart of the practice.
Personal Mending: Building a practice around embellishment & repair
SUNDAY, MARCH 10 2pm-5pm
Join Rachel at The Fiberhouse in a craft-circle-style class focused around developing a personal process for the embellishment and repair of well-loved garments. Learn to listen to the fabric and give life back to garments you've worn out but aren't ready to retire. Participants are encouraged to bring their own mending projects and Rachel will help everyone with each of their pieces individually and communally so we can all focus on our own work and simultaneously learn from one another.
We have facilitated workshops at universities, museums, makerspaces, farms and schools. REACH OUT to schedule a workshop at your space, or a private lesson at the Fiberhouse studio. Here are some highlights:
