Upcoming Workshops


2014 STUDIO AND AWAY WORKSHOPS

Studio workshops, held at my studio in West Asheville, NC, are in BLUE print. These workshops are two days long.  The extended time gives everyone more time to think, ponder and work on the processes. Since many students come from out of town and have to book a hotel for a night, coming for two days makes more sense.
Workshops will start at 10 am and go to 4 or 5pm on Saturday and Sunday. 
The classes are limited to just 4 people so everyone will have plenty of space
and personal attention.  The charge for the extended two day class is $250. There will be a supply fee depending on the class topic.
 A $50 norefundable deposit is required to hold your place.  Please email me for more information and to register. Chad@chadalicehagen.com (Days other than the weekend may be possible if groups (2 to 4 people) would like a private class.  I am open for your suggestions if you would like to propose other topics.)

AWAY WORKSHOPS (held at other venues) are in black type.  
Please contact organizers for more information

JUNE AND JULY CLASS DATES WILL BE ADDED SOON.  PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN WORKSHOP DATES BEYOND MAY.  THANKS AND SEE YOU SOON.
*******************************************************************  RESIST DYEING ON HANDFELTED WOOL AND THE FELT WRAP JOURNAL
Our workshop will start by introducing and learning to felt fine Australian merino needle punch batts.  Dye Master Chad will show how to set up a safe and workable dye kitchen.  Then using hundreds of weird and fascinating tools, students will be guided into the world of resist dyeing on felt – very different from anything else!  We’ll do 9 dye baths over-dyeing the felt into amazing pieces of art!  Students will make 11 samples. Then on our second day - create both a leather-lined, felt wrapped blank journal, while learning about text blocks,  long stitch bindings and choice of closures. We will also stitch and bead the front flap of the book cover.
