Materially challanged??

Ok I am at my tether with worry about the looming fabric shortage that myself and other lovers of vintage fabric are facing. There is simply a dwindling supply  locally and even though i have a nice stash happening i think we need to be thinking about other options.

So here's the proposal....i will be running a one or two day weekend workshop in fabric printing and dying at the art centre in November. I haven't got costs worked out and what materials may be included in the charge but would like to know if anybody is interested in attending.
At the end of the weekend/day i would like everyone to be able to take home some new skills and some new (original) fabrics to work with.
Skills i think we should have a go at are silk screening and dying practices. I am thinking tie dying (especially the coffee plunger method) and some experimentation with natural dying.
Not only do i want to do this i think it would be great to do this as a group...i am pretty sure the Stitch n Bitch girls will be keen so let me know if you would like to join in soon. The Art centers space fills up very fast and i couldn't see being able to cater for more than 12 to 15 (especially as the tools themselves will require some room).
I'm also thinking we should get someone to cater lunch as part of the price so we can really spend all our time concentrating on the important stuff.
So put your hands up if you think you might like to get involved, email me:
