Tuesday, May 9, 2017 – WOOLY MASON JAR DYEING

The Wooly Mason Jar Colour Wheel Dye System is an innovative, easy way of learning how to dye using 3 Primary Colours and learning the Colour Wheel as you go.

Wednesday, May 10, 2017 – BRAIDED EDGE FOR HOOKED PIECE

Instructor: Donna Bullerwell, NS

Rug braiding and hooking are a perfect combination. By using the same wool as your hooked project, you can frame your piece in a unique way. Bring a small hooked piece or chair pad and extra wool to learn the tricks of braiding a perfect edge for your piece.

Donna has had a love of fibre arts her whole life. She learned to hook before she went to school. Her aunt taught her how to braid. She has taught Bobbin Lace and Braiding in the Pictou County area of Nova Scotia for the past 15 years.

Thursday, May 11, 2017 – THREE DIMENSIONAL FELTING

Instructor: Delia Burge, NS

Learn to make cute and fuzzy friends from wool rovings. Build a wool sculpture using a single felting needle. A day of fun felting adventure, who knows, perhaps a whole menagerie will appear. Delia will show you how to make them and how to develop something spectacular.

Delia is a partner in Water Street Studio in Pictou, Nova Scotia. She has taught fibre arts for many years. She is a dyer, rug hooker, felter and weaver, just to name a few of her accomplishments.
