Fractal Explosions - From Prep to Ply
Saturday September 26th 10-5
Advanced Beginner - This is a great class for all sorts of spinners- Spindle and Wheels Spinners, ultra textured art yarn spinners, to the most traditional laceweight spinners!!
In this full day class, students will explore the structure of the fractal ply. First by creating their own colorways on blending boards, hackles and drum carders, and then spinning a variation of samples, starting with the traditional 2ply fractal, and then moving to crepe and cable fractal plying.
Students should be able to spin a single of different weights, and ply comfortably. Included materials are: 4oz coordinating top(roving), use of plying yarn. Students should bring at least 4 oz of top (roving) in 4 different colors (at least 1oz per color). Also please bring your Spinning wheel or spindles, bobbins, bobbin of fresh overspun singles (as even as possible), niddy noddy, lazy kate, any plying yarns they would like to play with. If you own any of these tools, please bring them with you to the class (drum carders, blending boards and hackles).
Expressive Weaving - Beyond the Edges
Sunday September 27th 10-5
Take your weaving to the next creative and textural level! In this class we will use Rigid Heddle (RH) looms to weave with expressive freedom. We will warp and learn some creative warping tricks. Students will learn techniques from across the weaving spectrum, along with new tricks to create texture and colorplay within woven cloth.
Students will learn weft techniques, as well as playing with manipulating warp threads during weaving, and adding supplemental warp threads. Students are encouraged to bring add in’s (any trims, bits, bobs or collected memories they’d like to include) textured yarns, and creative handspun yarns to use in their weaving.
Students should bring their RH loom and black yarn to warp with.
