HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS WITH VIOLA TEXTILE STUDIO
Viola Textile Studio has moved into the digital age! With hands-on workshops scarce this year, we have spent much of 2020 preparing for the transition to online learning. Beginning in January, we will have monthly classes packed with video tutorials, zoom gatherings, and supply kits delivered to your door. 2021 is going to be a year of creativity, and we hope you will join the fun!
Quilt Block of the Month
Have you always wanted to make a quilt but felt too daunted to know where to begin? Or perhaps you are an experienced quilter looking for a new project?Starting in January, new and experienced quilters alike will embark on a 12-month journey together! Each month, you will receive a new quilt pattern and a box of hand-dyed indigo fabrics, as well as step-by-step video tutorials, zoom calls, and all the support you need to assemble four 12-inch blocks. Follow along all year & you will have 48 blocks - Enough to make an entire quilt. Community and quilting go hand-in-hand & we are thrilled to start this new online community of quilters.
Natural Dye of the Month
2021 is going to be a colorful year! Join us as we delve into a different natural dye each month. Beginning with some of our favorites, Indigo, Weld, and Cochineal, we will work our way through the color wheel, dyeing both yarns and fabrics. On top of that, we will teach you different Shibori techniques for making beautiful patterning on fabric. Each month you will receive a box with everything you need - the natural dyes, fabric, yarn, Shibori tools, instructions, and record keeping sheets for you to reference on future projects. We use only safe dyes and mordants, so everything we send you will be home, family, and pet friendly.
