In this workshop students will create a wide variety of sensuous silk yarns – from boucle to eyelash yarns – using texture, colour and ply manipulation. Waste silks (noil, sari silk, and throwsters silk) will be used to add both texture and colour. Participants will also blend silk with other exotic fibres to create luxurious yarns.
Students will learn drafting, spinning and plying techniques, as well as hand carding and blending.
Materials Fee: $30
Level: You must know how to spin a continuous thread and ply
