Kathrin Weber of Blazing Shuttles came west this spring to do several workshops and teach at CNCH2016 in Modesto. RFG considered themselves quite lucky to be able to book her for a dyeing workshop "Not Your Grandma's Dyepot" while she was in our vicinity.
We donned our funky clothing - brought buckets, cups and measuring spoons and an array of containers along with warp chains and skeins to learn the art of creating fabulous dyed yarns. A separate gallery for photos of our yarns and projects has been set up here. Now to the comments about this fabulous class from participants.
"Must say this was one of the best and possibly the best workshop I have attended. The presentation was top-notch, smooth, professional and not confining. I think those in attendance probably took more information with them than they expected. Kathrin is a very good instructor; very much a promoter of learning by doing and this means getting in and playing with the colors. Very enjoyable, highly recommended." - Igor R.
"We had a wonderful 2 days of learning Kathrin's method of space dying skeins and warps. What a fun couple of days! Lots of techniques for both weavers and knitters...This is a "must have" class for weavers. It was amazing to see what had been woven on the warps that she had dyed...simply gorgeous! Knitters will enjoy her class as you learn to blend the colors on the skeins." - Jane M.
