Alchemy Yarns: Modern Shibori Masterclass with Michael del Vecchio

Saturday, August 13, 10am - 4pm

Alchemy Yarns of Transformation & Gina Wilde have pioneered the art of Modern Shibori - the art of combining silk and silk blended yarns toward creating “shape resist” fabrics. The results are incomparable - shawls, scarves, and garments mix the strong lines of felted silk and wool with the soft lines of silk to create projects with incredible drape and softness. It’s not just yarn though - Alchemy is one of the *original* hand-dyers in our market - approaching dyeing with the right mix of science and creativity to create semi-solids and multis which are beyond compare.

On August 13, join Michael del Vecchio for an in-depth look at the Alchemy Yarns of Transformation and Gina Wilde's amazing design aesthetic. We’ll review three main project techniques in this class - intarsia short rows, the use of I-cord to create lines, and the art of lace and texture in combination. We’ll review the design elements of projects like the Nautilus Wrap, Hither & Yonder; the Wisdom Wrap, Waterfall Scarf, and Tibetan Flag Scarf; and the Fit of Passion & Shibori Shawlette patterns - and work together to learn the techniques that make these projects so special. Best of all, we’ll do a thorough review of the finishing process and the steps needed to take the finished knitted item that will make it a cornerstone accessory in your wardrobe.  

Bring to class - Yarn and needles for the project of your choice, with 1 skein Sanctuary and 1 skein Silken Straw already wound into balls, along with your notions kit 

Cost:  $80.00  receive a 10.00 class fee credit with the purchase of two or more alchemy projects before class or the day of the class.
