Tag: Natural dyes; Maiwa Handprints; Charllotte Kwon
Last Monday, June 22 was registration for the Maiwa Handprints Symposium of workshops and lectures. I have tried for 3 years now to get into the Natural Dyeing Workshop with Charllotte Kwon. Registration opened on the website and by phone and in person at 10 am. I was driving my friend to an eye appointment in Victoria…so pulled over and my better half took over the driving. I went into the backseat and kept redialing the number. It was always busy. We arrived at our destination in Victoria early for the appointment with the plan to get some lunch. So I turned the phone off, we parked the car, and walked to a restaurant. After our order was taken, I started dialing again. After about 5 min, I actually got through to a wonderful lady who asked if she could help me. I said I would like to register for the Natural Dye Workshop….I couldn’t believe my ears when she said there was one place left and it was mine!!! I am very excited to participate in this class. It will be for four days in September at Maiwa East. I love natural dyes, teach classes, and dye lots of my handspun yarns. Now to expand my knowledge with an expert like Charllotte is wonderful. I will keep you posted on my dyeing adventures in September.
