April 26, Wednesday – 1 Day Class
No matter where you are in your spinning journey, beginner or seasoned spinner, come and join me on the Silk Road. We will explore the myths, mysteries, and joys of spinning that most sensuous of fibres – Silk. Participants in this workshop will spin all types and preparations of silk (from Bombyx to muga, brick to waste). You will learn appropriate drafting techniques and spin yarns suitable for weaving, knitting, and embroidery. Learn to blend silk with other exotic fibres to create luxurious yarns for that special project.
A perfect companion class to this one is John Mullarkey’s Intro to Card Weaving with Silk. No weaving experience needed but loads of fun and you can use your handspun silk!
