coriand3r knits is and indie dyer and crafty nerd. She is drawn to bold colours, and experiments a lot with different dye techniques. Her long-colour change gradient yarns are one of a kind by their nature, but she often returns to similar colour combinations such as red to black, rainbows, and generally saturated colours.
Dragon Strings is a indie dye studio that focuses on fantastic one of a kind colourways and smooshy-smooth yarn bases. Inspiration is taken from photos, nature, geek culture and literary sources. You never know what's going to come out of the pot this week!
Annika will share her expertise in colour theory and dying yarn as in instructor for lectures and workshops for this retreat.
Angora Springs is a small family run farm in the Dundas Valley. We raise our animals in an loving, ethical and organic manner. Our wool comes only from our small flock of fibre sheep, raised, shorn and milled in Ontario. We blend our yarns with a small amount of mohair from our angora goats to give it both a beautiful sheen and strength. Rovings, yarn, felting supplies, and and occasionally organic lambs are available.
Come visit our farm!!
