New Leaf's FARM TOURS
Consider it a large "open house" with 34 participating farms in No. FL & So. GA counties throughout the weekend, hosting all manner of farm produce, livestock (exotic & otherwise), farm-to-table dinners, hayrides, vendors, displays & demos, etc. My sheep love visitors with handouts and I'll have several displays & demos for weaving, spinning, natural dyeing, & paper-making. These are all activities offered in adult workshops or Dyed 'N Wool Arts for Kids.
New this year: * follow the Dye Scavenger Trail to find samples of natural dye plants and the colors they make
                * BYO t-shirt for vegie-dyed, tie-dyed patterns. (100% cotton only)
~ 11am -3pm, $3ea. This is a bi-annual event for me, when my "farmette" is open Saturday only.
Next one will be October 22,2016. More on Dyed'N Wool.

Note: See various demos and activities from Farm Tour '16 in a Prezi slide presentation.

( Every 1st full Weekend in November

November 3-5, 2017
Great Gulf Coast Arts Festival

A national "showcase" show, The Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival, one of the best in the nation, celebrates a wide range of arts from music and performing arts, to regional & culinary arts, and best of all, to craft and visual arts. The Heritage Area especially honors those practices passed down through our culture, all in a notable setting of another historical art - architecture.
After 36 years of participation,I'm still awed by its effect on the many visitors who come and support the artists every year. Look for me on Zaragossa St., surrounded by other weavers & spinners, potters, woodworkers, jewelers, glassworkers, and more. My space is near the corner of Seville Square.


Historic Seville Square -9am - dusk.

for adults: TRI-WEAVING WORKSHOPS

The triangle frame offers a great way to weave LOTS of texture & color into a simple wrap in just a few hours. A unique process for beginning or experienced "yarn people", it weaves from two opposing corners at the same time.Use those colorful,glitzy, textured novelty yarns and also recycle leftover yarns from other projects to make a full-size shawl, scarf, throws, totes, curtains, etc. Optional frame provided (yours to keep), or DIY. We will learn 3 techniques, which you will continue at your own pace at home.
    Add more fun with dyeing nature's colors for a fun embellishment. This two-part workshop combines both. We'll dye 3 shades (plus a myriad of overdyes), with sample wools and whatever other yarns you want to dye. Swee'Pea and the lambs are providing a small ball of handspun Shetland wool to each participant. BYO cottons, silks, or linens, if desired. (Must be natural fibers.)
   Visit the sheep, and come dye and weave at my "farmette", 291 Green Meadows Dr., Monticello. $25, $65, or both- $80, +-frame, $25, through Visa/Mc (by phone), check, or Paypal.
        Call for registration details, 850-997-5505.
    See more info and many samples of projects & workshops:
Classes. Ask for one in your area. See finished items at Triangle Weaves page.



for adults: PAPER-MAKING WORKSHOPS
    A fun process that yields wonderfully textured papers, to be used for cards, mats, bookmarks, photo or painting backgrounds, bookmaking, scrapbooking, or journaling. Or mold it into 3-D forms: boxes, planters, etc.
     We will make simple frames with embroidery hoops & screening, grind a mix of pulp from colorful junkmail and abaca fibers (for strength), and embellish with other fibers, petals, yarns, glitter, etc. See samples.
