Location: Bodega Pastures, Bodega CA
In this two-day workshop, you will make for yourself a customized and stylish felt vest from Bodega Pastures’ finest sheep’s wool.
Day 1: Size and design the patterns, card the wool on the Cyclocarder, meet and greet the sheep! Continuing the ancient tradition of singing while working, singers from the world-renown group Kitka will lead rhythmic work songs in vocal techniques from Eastern Europe.
Day 2: Felting and decorating the vests. Plus, a small natural dye project for embellishment.
Camping is accommodated on site, and a full dinner and breakfast will be provided. The setting is rustic, but wheelchair accessible.
Instructor: Katharine Ellen Jolda is the artisan behind Felt the Sun, a collection of felt apparel made from Navajo and Bay Area wool, and understands her felt practice as a creative form of “direct action” that builds reciprocal and honorable relationships to serve practical needs.
Bodega Pastures is a 1200-acre ranch in the hills surrounding Salmon Creek, just outside of the town of Bodega. Since the 1960s, several families have collaborated as stewards of the land, running about 300 sheep, and offering a Waldorf-inspired pre-school for children in the area.
