Daryl Lancaster Oct. 30-Nov. 3, 2017
I am excited to announce that I will be hosting my Second Annual Fall Island Fiberworks Retreat with Daryl Lancaster!
This Daryl Lancaster workshop will last for 5 days and is based on Garment Construction. The dates of the workshop will be Monday Oct. 30, 2017 through Friday Nov. 3, 2017. Participants will want to plan on arriving the day before, Sunday Oct. 29, and leaving Saturday Nov. 4, 2017. The workshop will be held in the event room at the Sea Ranch Resort in Kill Devil Hills, NC. Details on the workshop below:
Garment Construction Intensive:
Wrap your body in clothing from your own hands. All levels are welcome. This is a terrific class for those wanting to learn to fit and sew clothing from their handwoven, hand printed, dyed, quilted, felted or just commercial fabric, as well as for those more experienced students wanting polished and professional results. New students will construct a basic custom fit unlined jacket from their own fabric while learning all sorts of inspiring construction techniques to make their garments reflect their creativity. Returning students who have already made a jacket with me in any other class will bring their own patterns and agenda. Materials fee for new students only: $35. Interfacing, pattern paper and extensive bound handout, twill tape, press bar and shoulder pads. All others may purchase materials as needed. ALL LEVELS ARE WELCOME.

She gives lectures and workshops to guilds, conferences, and craft centers all over the United States and Canada.

Room rates at the Sea Ranch will be $82 for a regular ocean front room, $60 for an inside room, and $125 per night for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with living/kitchen combo and laundry.
The cost for the Daryl’s workshop is $600 plus material fees, the cost of your lodging and food. I plan to have a meet and greet with heavy horderves the Sunday evening Oct. 29 so please plan on attending and eating with the group.
