LISA GARCIA &
NATURALLY DYED FIBER ART WALL HANGING
This workshop gives the opportunity to learn how to naturally dye fiber and then transform that fiber into a beautiful piece of art for the wall. Rebekka of Camellia Fiber Company walks us through how to properly dye a raw wool yarn skein using roots, nuts, dried flowers and other natural materials and then Lisa Garcia of Soñadora Studio will show us how to create a beautiful, structural wall hanging with the finished product. In this workshop we are working with madder root but this particular technique is so wonderful for so many applications! We are excited to get you started.
Rebekka and Lisa co-own the shop and studio space Earthen Studios in Nashville, Tennessee in the Buchanan Arts District. They are close friends and work together to create inspiring works of art.
