WORKSHOPS and How I do it

Workshops available for groups in my studio or your location!

If you are a group or club and would like a session with just your group, let’s talk! Classes can be in silk painting, indigo dyeing, needle felting on silk, easy dye silk scarves, ecoprinting on silk, wool, leather or paper, create a wallhanging, screen printing on silk, designing with scraps, making pillows  and a host of additional DIY fiber (and painting) arts!


Private one on one workshops are available in my studio. Contact me to chat about what you’d like to learn with a 1 or 2 day private session!

Want me to come to you? I get a LOT of requests to come do workshops in various locations! I am honored that you would like to learn from me. Traveling either by car or plane requires a lot of pre-planning 🙂 Many of my requests start by asking for a price but I cannot give a rate until I know details.  How much equipment would I need to bring to a location? How many students are expected? Do you have a location for us all? Do you have access to water, sinks and your own steamers or big pots? A place I can stay?
A well planned event can be hugely fun and exciting and I am happy to be a part of that. Let’s make plans!

Workshop Policies

Most of my workshops are 1 day and full payment is due upon registration. In the event of 2 day workshops, participants can choose to pay  in full or hold your spot with a deposit with the balance due 10 days before the workshop date.

All workshops include the supplies fee.

Cancellations and Refunds:

If an enrolled participant cancels a workshop 30 days or more before the class,  a 100% refund is given.

If an enrolled participant cancels a workshop 15 -25 days before the start of the class, a 50% refund is given.  Because enrollment ends 2 weeks before the workshop and supplies and schedules have been determined, no refunds can be given within the 2 weeks (14 days) before the class starts.   Occasionally it is possible to apply the payment for one workshop to another upcoming one based on availability.
