There are a limited number of openings at the Anita Mayer workshop June 2 and 3 at the Grange in Mancos.  Join us for “Mud Pies for Adults” or Creative Surface Designs.  Cost for the workshop is $110 for members and $120 for non-members and includes all food and materials.  There are members with places to stay if you want to stay over.  Just listen to all we are going to learn!

This workshop is for anyone who likes to play while they explore a wide range of methods that transform plain cloth into unique fabric. These techniques are safe, simple to do and require minimal materials.  Each participant will assemble a reference notebook as they make small fabric samples using marbling, resists, fabric crayons, paint sticks, marbled tissue, foiling, stamping, shibori with tea, rusting and more.  Everyone will have the fun of trying innovative ways to decorate cloth, wrapping paper, greeting cards and journals.  Each student will complete three silk scarves using techniques learned in the class.  This is an introduction to creativitiy that includes a personal book of instruction.  This workshop is for all skill levels.  

Use the Contact Us form if you are interested in attending.


Rigid heddle

In August the Guild sponsored a workshop on pickup patterns on the rigid heddle loom led by Liz Gibson.  Some spent Friday night at Hesperus Camp and the workshop was held there on Saturday.  It was a great learning experience and fun was had by all.  Check the Who We Are for more pictures.
