Mini Workshops Start Next Week

This is a time of year when I’m not travelling much. So, it’s a good time to offer small workshops at home. I’ve scheduled a series of mini workshops to start next Thursday. Each workshop will be at my house (in Lake Ann, Michigan), starting at 1pm, on Thursday afternoons.

The first workshop is next Thursday, January 19, “Spinning Balanced Singles”. Here are some details:

Spinning Balanced Singles: Do you like thick yarns? In this session we will practice making “lopi-style” yarns. These are singles yarns (not plied) with not too much twist. You will practice using a “point-of-contact” long draw to make the yarn. $10 fee (covers handouts and fiber for spinning). Bring your spinning wheel. 1-2:30pm, Thursday, January 19, 2012

Here’s a picture of the yarns in question:
