Rust Dyed Nuno Felt Scarf

Date(s): Sunday, Nov 19 from 12:30-2:30 and Nov 26 from 12:30-3:30
We've combined two of our favourite workshops into one! In this two day workshop you'll learn all about a unique fibre dyeing technique and the art of nuno felting!
In the first lesson, you'll learn how to prepare your materials, how to set up a rust dyeing apparatus, and how to dye a silk chiffon scarf with recycled rusty materials! In the second, you'll combine your dyed silk with white wool in order to nuno felt it into a one-of-a-kind scarf!
This workshop is all about experimentation and creative expression!

Holiday Gift Swap and Fundraising Party with Fabrications!

Date(s): November 27th, 2017, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Join us for an evening of fun and fundraising at Fabrications at 1018 Wellington St. W on November 27th from 7pm to 9pm! All proceeds of the evening will go directly to the Parkdale Food Centre. I’m sure we are all aware of the reality of food insecurity in our community. The Parkdale Food Centre seeks to meet individuals immediate food needs, but is also a constant warrior in the battle to address the underlying causes of food insecurity. The focus of the evening will be an old fashioned secret gift swap. Bring a handmade gift, and put it under our tree.   The item you contribute must be handmade by you, made using supplies from your stash, and notions should be no more than $5! Please gift wrap your contribution and feel free to put your name on it or not as you prefer. We will take turns selecting a parcel that someone else has made! These items can be anything! A holiday ornament, a scarf, a tote bag, a microwave heat bag, napkins, a coffee cup cozy, an apron, crocheted brooch, knitted wristlets, legwarmers, and so much more! Use your imagination and don’t worry about it being perfect! Follow our social media accounts (@fabricationsottawa or @fabricationsott or @wabisabiyarnor @wabisabiyarn) for creative ideas! We will also have a silent auction with some awesome big tickets surprises (jeans class, shirtmaking class, class at Wabi Sabi, pattern packages), door prizes, and refreshments.   Come with a friend! You can purchase your ticket at either Fabrications OR Wabi Sabi (in-store only). Tickets include a $5 coupon from the store where you purchase your ticket for any notions that you might need for your project. Entry tickets also include three tickets for your choice of door prize draws. Extra door prize tickets can be purchased for $5. Tickets are non-refundable but are transferrable.
