Felted Vest Workshop with Katharine Jolda

September 7, 2013 @ 10:00 am - September 8, 2013 @ 5:00 pm

Felted vest-making workshop with guest singers from Kitka
Date:  Saturday and Sunday, September 7-8, 10 am to 5 pm each day
Location:  Bodega Pastures, Bodega CA
Cost:  $250. Limited to 6 students.
Please contact Katharine at katharine@feltthesun.com for more information.

Registration: Only one space left as of August 26th. To reserve your place, email fibershed@gmail.com, and you will be sent a Paypal payment request.

In this two-day workshop, you will make for yourself a customized and stylish felt vest from Bodega Pastures’ finest sheep’s wool.

Day 1: Size and design the patterns, card the wool on the Cyclocarder, meet and greet the sheep! Continuing the ancient tradition of singing while working, members of Kitka, the world-famous woman’s vocal ensemble, will bring folk songs from Eastern Europe.

Day 2: Felting and decorating the vests. Plus, a small natural dye project for embellishment.

Camping is accommodated on site, and a full dinner and breakfast will be provided. The setting is rustic, but wheelchair accessible.

Instructor Katharine Ellen Jolda is the artisan behind Felt the Sun, a collection of felt apparel made from Navajo and Bay Area wool, and understands her felt practice as a creative form of “direct action” that builds reciprocal and honorable relationships to serve practical needs.

Read more about Katharine in the blog post Mother of Invention on the Fibershed blog.

Bodega Pastures is a 1200-acre ranch in the hills surrounding Salmon Creek, just outside of the town of Bodega. Since the 1960s, several families have collaborated as stewards of the land, running about 300 sheep, and offering a Waldorf-inspired pre-school for children in the area.
