Fibre Arts Series
CCOM 1323 FRE02
Materials:There will be two supplies packages available: one for $20 or another for $7 (payable in cash to the instructor at the workshop). Choose the one that's right for you! You’ll receive a bag of undyed carded wool to keep and will have the use of a very basic top-whorl spindle and an equally basic bottom-whorl spindle during the workshop. The $20 option allows you to keep both spindles and receive a bonus bag containing dyed wool for experimenting with, plus a large button and a ceramic bead for when you try plying at home. If you opt for the $7 supply package, you’ll receive only one spindle to take home, and will need to source your own button and bead.

About the Instructor
Margot was once a knitter, but once she attended a spindling workshop she realized that she liked yarn way more than knitting or crocheting. She originally thought she wanted to be a handspinner and she even attended a sheep-to-shawl workshop once, but the emphasis was on using spinning wheels. She's regretful about that since she could have been spindling for all those years when she couldn't afford a wheel! After finally splashing out on a second-hand wheel, she had ‘Epiphany Number Two’: she prefers the spindles! She discovered that wheels are complicated, but that “anyone can spin a stick." Even though those two workshops many years apart are her only informal qualifications, so far her success rate at teaching others to spindle is 100%!
