3 days of Judith & silk

I'm so lucky to live in a place with so many resources and where we regularly have access to such great teachers. This is going to be a great class.

"ON THE ROAD TO SAMARKAND:
The Art of Spinning Silk
Judith MacKenzie McCuin
Friday, July 6-Saturday, July 7 & Sunday July 8,
9:30-4:30pm $175.00

In this workshop, we’ll look at the rich variety of silk fibers available and what techniques to use to best spin them. We’ll spin tussah and cultivated top. We’ll learn how silk “hankies” are made and how to spin them. We’ll examine how twist and ply affect the yarn and the finished fabric in both woven and knit structures. We’ll use a variety of novelty spinning methods to produce a set of designer yarns.
STUDENTS SHOULD BE ABLE TO SPIN A CONTINUOUS THREAD AND HAVE A GOOD WORKING RELATIONSHIP WITH THEIR WHEEL. MATERIALS PROVIDED."


So, I think my relationship with my wheel might be good enough...
