Spin Textured Yarns

10 remaining

Are you lured by artistic yarns? Are you stuck in a spinning rut - you've spun all the fibers and your yarn comes out the same? Join Jennifer Green, art yarn spinner, homesteader, and color enthusiast, in "Spin Textured Yarns" and leave with a whole new bag of tricks to apply to fibers that produce intentional, consistent, artistic yarns.

Jennifer will guide students through spinning wool locks, including non- fiber elements, yarn construction such as "coils" and "beehives", using flax to create interest, and adding manipulated elements to handspun yarn.

FEE: $60 includes all instruction, locks, spinning wool and add-ins, and instruction. No additional materials are required.
