The Woad to France
After the success of our last Woad Workshop here in Los Angeles in April, we knew we had to do it all over again. So...this coming October, we will be hosting dye master, Denise Lambert, who will be traveling from France to the States, again, to teach a handful of lucky students the art of dying with the ancient plant of woad. Although we are sold out of our special workshop in Los Angeles, we are happy to announce we have collaborated with two groups of textile enthusiasts who will be hosting their own Woad Workshop in September.
Old friends Colin Cooke and Ellen Silverman will be offering the Woad Workshop on Sunday, September 18th at Colin's home just north of New York City. If you are interested in participating in this special day, please e-mail Colin at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
The weekend after, September 24th, Denise will be traveling out west to Northern California where she will be offering the Woad Workshop at the Civic Arts Center in Walnut Creek. Sign-ups for the class are here and read more about the day in the Civic Arts Education Catalog - just click on the catalog button in the left hand menu and then scroll down to page six.
If you are still on the fence as to whether or not you should experience this magical class - you can read more about our adventures with woad here, here and here.
