Join fiber artist Sheridan Mercer of JO+ALEX designs in a hand dyed wall hanging workshop!

 

In this workshop participants will learn how to assemble a wall hanging with a simple Larks Head knot. Using our dreamy Hillfolk wool yarn, responsibly sourced here in the U.S., we will complete the assembly of your very own mini wall hanging before moving onto the hand dyeing process. Students will get the option to choose from 3 different colors of dye. She will assist in demonstrating techniques and guidance throughout the assembly and dyeing process, but most of all encouraging everyone to just have fun with it!

 

Materials provided: 
- 5/8 x 12 in Oak Dowel
- Hillfolk natural Wool Yarn 
- 3 color choices of dye 
- Disposable vinyl gloves
Students are highly encouraged to wear old clothing and shoes as the dye can be rather messy + permanent!

 

Bio:
JO+ALEX designs was a concept that started small. I first began creating wall hangings for my own home. I soon found myself falling in love with the art medium and the idea grew from there. I began taking custom orders from friends and family, attended craft shows and promoted my own work as often as possible (to literally anyone who would listen).
Over the past few years the progression of my art has shifted to a more minimalist, yet transitional style of fiber art. I began phasing out some of my past designs to solely incorporate Hillfolk's Aran weight for all JO+ALEX designs Wall Hangings. This Merino/CVM blend is grown on Cactus Hill Ranch in SW Colorado, a small US family owned operation ran by a father x daughter team. They work hard to ensure the sheep are raised using sustainable practices. Which perfectly aligns with JO+ALEX design's mission: take pride in your work and always strive to leave this world better than you found it! 
As a small business owner x artist, it's SO important to me that I am knowledgeable in where the product I use comes from. I am confident you will see the love poured into each strain by everyone involved in the making of your JO+ALEX designs Wall Hangings!
