I am really excited to share the details of my August fiber intensive! This very color filled weekend will be a full-time learning experience in my gorgeous mountain meadow. Subjects will include: --Creating a book that you will fill with samples from a full day of plant dyeing
--Dye plant pressing that will be added to your book
--Creating a Spinner's notebook that you will fill with samples from a full day of spinning
--Cooking demos before each dinner; plus you'll take home recipes from all meals
--A day of knitting for color work; Creating wearable samples
The Mt Hood Fiber Retreat will begin on Thursday evening, August 1 and end late Sunday afternoon, August 4. The cost of $450 includes all classes, materials, snacks, lunches and dinners (bring your own alcoholic beverage). If we have more than 10 people the enrollment price will drop to $400 so invite your friends!
The retreat is being held in the village of Welches, Oregon. One hour above Portland and 45 min from the Portland airport. There is a beautiful resort with a golf course just one mile away, Creekside Cabins across the way from them and two B&B residences at a half mile away. For those flying in I suggest arriving on Wednesday or staying until Monday eve so that you don't miss a visit to Timberline lodge. At a 20 minute drive you may even want to stay there.
There will be detailed posts on each of the days' activities this week as well. If you want a place reserved for you please leave a comment or email me at debaccuardi @gmail.com I will begin taking partial payment on May 15 with final payment due July 1.
