You're invited to join Janna Maria in person for Tiny Tapestries - a chock-full workshop which introduces new weavers to the fundamentals of tapestry. We cover the basic design principles of tapestry weaving and then dive into the techniques, including some magic ones.

Why weave tiny tapestries?

Tiny tapestries can be made into ornaments, magnets, pins, patches, tiny wall hangings and whatever else your imagination can dream up. and they are a great way to dip your toes into the world of weaving tapestry.

Naturally Dyeing Wool

When: Saturday April 13th, 11pm -5pm
Where: Everlea Studio, Madeira Park BC

Learn to dye wool yarn with plants at the Everlea Studio with Janna Maria. You will learn how to make natural dye extracts, how to prepare wool yarn for dye, and then we will use immersion dyeing for single colour yarns as well as semi-immersion dyeing for two-colour dyeing. You will go home with two skeins of naturally dyed yarn that you have dyed in colours of your choosing, as well as samples and recipes of a variety of colours which we will have dyed together that day.
