Yarnitecture: Building Exactly The Yarn You Want
August 2, 2020 – August 8, 2020
This workshop will provide students the tools they need to spin an intentional yarn and learn the why’s and how’s of yarn construction. Through sampling, participants can make choices in fiber and spinning techniques and create yarns consistent in size, draft and ply and explore techniques for spinning color without dyeing. Working with solid colors and hand painted braids, students will mix, blend and manipulate color and color flow to create yarns both unique and beautiful. At week’s end, you will spin an intentional yarn for a specific project to gain confidence in spinning and mixing color. Adventurous beginners who can make a continuous yarn will dive deeper into spinning basics, while more experienced spinners will experiment beyond the yarns they have been making. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
