Spinning and Felting Workshop
Jul 16, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm| $8.00
This workshop focuses on the process of cloth making from raw fleece and roving (cleaned, carded fleece) to yarn and felted fabrics. We will be spinning—both with a drop spindle as well as with a spinning wheel. We will be felting—both needle felting and water felting. We will be creating beads, patches, paintings, creatures. If you can imagine it, you can felt it! During the workshop there will be discussions of the methods used throughout the history of cloth-making. Be prepared to leave this class with something wonderful that you’ve made.
