GENCON2018 - Fiber Exploration

This is the first year we are trying this workshop. In previous years I've talked about various fibers and preparation methods in the Drop Spindle workshops; this year I am breaking off a specific chunk of time to go more in depth. So we are doing a sort of hands-on seminar where I will provide samples of various fibers including differences in breeds of sheep's wool, mohair, silk, and various exotic and odd materials. We will talk about their properties, what makes them work, and you will put together your own personal sample journal with all the neat things. 

I will also demonstrate various fiber processing tools and other neat stuff. This will be a blast!

Deja Vu Fine Art and Craft Show

Green Dingo is thrilled to be invited back to one of the most amazing holiday fine art shows in central Indiana - the amazing Deja Vu show in downtown Columbus, IN. Deja Vu celebrates art that makes use of recycled and repurposed materials. Every year we are blown away by the quality of the works displayed and the artists who make them. And the setting in the Commons is a great venues, anchored by the scuplture Chaos II (which heavily influenced Chad's design aethetics) and surrounded by several excellent restaurants. Its only a short drive outside of Indianapolis, but is well worth the road trip effort.
