Natural Dyeing for Needle Felters with Rachel Bingham-Kessler

Join Rachel of 44Clovers at PortFiber for a 2-part natural dye and songbird needle felting class!

Day 1:  Saturday, June 14th; 1:00pm-5:00pm 

Using Irish Texel fleece, we will use hand cards to make rolags.  We will discuss general dye safety, and then dye our rolags an assortment of bright and soft colors, depending upon the songbirds we choose to felt.

Day 2:  Saturday, June 21st; 1:00pm-4:00pm

Using our dried rolags we're ready to form our songbirds. We'll discuss various needle felting techniques for achieving the tiny details. 

Cost is $140 and includes all materials.
