Natalie Chanin in my town, no way!
Designer Natalie Chanin, who I've written about a few times on this blog will actually be in my little city of Richmond, VA soon.
She will conduct one of her full-day studio workshops as well as a sampler session at the Visual Center of Virginia (formerly the Hand Workshop). There will also be a trunk show where she will sell her clothing and project kits, and have her book, Alabama Stitch Book, available for purchase and signing.
The Friday workshop on May 15 is $75 and includes an Alabama Chanin bandana kit with all the materials and tools you’ll need to work on it. This workshop will be held in the VisArts fiber studio.
I also wish I could go to the workshop on Saturday, May 16, but for $450 it is truly out of my budget! Though if you can afford it, the price includes an Alabama Chanin kit with all the needed materials and tools to work on it, and a catered luncheon celebrating Southern food-ways. After there will be a cake and champagne reception all in the VisArts’ fiber studio in a reclaimed dairy in the historic Fan District. Swoon!
For some drool-worthy pics of her new collection, Songbirds, check this post on her blog.
