We offer custom tailored workshops in Southern California for ages 5+ and all skill levels in:

  • Natural Dyes
  • Tie-Dye/Shibori
  • Painting with Pigments
  • Knitting
  • Spinning (wheel and drop spindle)
  • Weaving
  • History of Cloth Production in Western Civilization

We can find teachers for almost any other fiber art imaginable. Our classes our 90% hands on, 10% lecture, so everyone will learn a new skill and appreciation for life in the past.

We’ve taught Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Indian Princesses, adults, college students, homeschool groups, and been part of elementary school field trips.

We can tailor the materials and information to any time period and place in the world – from dyeing with mud (pictured above) to how to use vegetables and other grocery store finds to dye Easter eggs!

We’re in this to teach and spread knowledge, so our prices are always negotiable. We can bring everything we need with us (including water!), so there’s no reason not to have us visit your guild, school, or needlework shop and set up a hands-on demo day.

In addition, we host one day fiber arts Frolics and a three day fiber arts retreat in Southern California.

Contact Us today to request a workshop for your guild, group, or troop!
