I will be vending again this year and teaching a special mini class in the afternoon:

Designing a Story Yarn 


This is an hour long condensed version of my story yarn workshop where you will learn how to design and create a narrative art yarn using color, texture, and spinning techniques to tell your unique story. 

Skill Level: Includes intermediate and advanced spinning techniques.

Basic materials are included but it is suggested that you bring with you:

1) Fiber: Anything you like, but in particular washed fleece, dyed locks, yarn cones, fuzzy mohair blend lace weight yarn for corespinning, sparkle, beads, shells, feathers, or any other found objects that can be spun are good choices.

2) Spinning wheel with large orifice and 2-3 bobbins (at least one large)

3) A print out of words or a picture of a story that you want to tell: For example a movie, song, sonnet, artwork, fairytale, folktale, myth, legend, fable, dreaming/songline, etc., or just about anything that has a point of view, characters, or narrative and inspires you. Don't worry if you don't have one - random stories will be provided for inspiration. 

See you there!
