Interlochen Fiber Arts Weekend

In just a few days – Friday, October 14 and Saturday, October 15 – Interlochen Center for the Arts will host its annual Fiber Arts Weekend. This two-day event offers workshops on spinning, weaving, dyeing, and rug hooking. On Saturday I’m teaching Support Spindles Big and Small, in which we’ll explore the Navajo spindle with wool, the Russian spindle with cashmere, and the Tahkli spindle with cotton.

Also, on Friday evening, the film TheTrue Cost  will be shown. This is a documentary about the global impact of the fashion industry on people and the environment. Following the film there will be a panel discussion. Panelists include:

The autumn colors are continuing to unfold. Now is a perfect time to visit this corner of Michigan for the color and the fiber!
