Get ready to undertake design challenges. This is a workshop for those who have previously been in AT LEAST two 5-day workshops with Jan (not necessarily at the Crow Timber Frame Barn). Participants should be ready to dig into some serious design work from the starting moments of the workshop. Arriving with a stash of potentiality, the wet studio will also be available as needed to do further dyeing. Dyeing will be independent, though Jan will be available for consultation, and coordination with others will be encouraged when possible. This is really your chance to stretch the right side of your brain, and to pick Jan’s. BTW: left brain necessary, too.

There will also be the opportunity for independent work; Jan's input will be available.

Please note: that participants will be working with cotton fabric, not silk.
