Spinning workshop

7 02 2009

Today, I taught a spinning workshop at Bay School of the Arts in mathews, VA
There were 10 participants in the class. 10! That’s so many. It was wonderful to meet these folks, and yet, I was wiped out at the end of the day. Everybody worked hard on the wheel for 6 hours. 9 people had yarn to take home. Some people wanted to continue spinning, and I believe one of them will be in my class tomorrow. We used the Fricke wheels. I have 5 single treadle, a folding double treadle, a regular double treadle, and a folding single treadle. I also have a Louet s-45. Other people brought other wheels. One brought a Lendrum, One brought a Louet, and another 2 students brought wheels that were not functional today.
This workshop was a Virginia Museum Statewide Partnership workshop. Loads of fun and I hope we get to do it again. I’ve contacted several other art centers, trying to hold this workshop in several other places also.
Hope to see you in class.

I’m glad it went well. I hope Barbara managed to learn what to do with a wheel. She spins some lovely stuff, but all on a spindle.
