Sometimes at Verb We Dye

Posted by Kristine Vejar on January 02, 2012 1 Comment

One of the very special things about Verb, is that we have an in-house natural dyeing studio.

When Kristine decided to build the current shop and studio, she did so with the intention that we could all share in the dyeing experience.  Both inside and outside the shop, we have room for creating everything from deep, madder reds, to bright indigo blues. Kristine has been doing production natural dyeing for the past 5 years. She'll share tips and tricks for obtaining a wide range of colors, creating light-fast colors, and striving for reproducible colorways.

 

This Saturday, January 7th, Kristine is teaching: 

By understanding the basics of the natural dyeing process, you will be able to use the studio during lab hours, and to attend future dyeing classes teaching advanced techniques - such as over-dyeing and creating variegated yarns

 

Also, on the 3rd Sunday of every month, Kristine will warm the indigo pots, and give you the chance to dye with the beautiful shade of indigo blue. While she maintains the pots, you get to dip yarn, fiber, or fabric shades of beautiful indigo blue. This is called Indigo Labs.

To read more about the classes, and to sign-up, please go here.

Happy Holidays! Open Late Friday, Nov. 25th!

Posted by Kristine Vejar on November 24, 2011 0 Comments

 

We are excited to announce we are participating in PLAID Friday this year at our Oakland brick and mortar. 

What is PLAID Friday?  PLAID Friday is the alternative to the big box store's "black Friday".  We encourage everyone to shop locally for their holiday gifts.  The Bay Area has some of the most talented artisans and we will be sharing a few with you. 

We will open the store as usual at 10am on Friday, November 25th, however,
from 4pm - 8pm we have invited SEVEN independent, LOCAL artisans to share their finished objects.

They will each have their own table and you will be able to purchase their goods directly from them!

Our friends, next door, at Actual Cafe will also be participating!  

So bring the whole family and enjoy a wonderful day of local love!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at A Verb for Keeping Warm!
