Medina Spinning & Weaving Guild is pleased to announce a workshop with Patsy Z (Zawistoski) on Spinning Flax, Hemp, Ramie, Bamboo & Tencel. Learn to dress, spin, balance, and ply these cellulose fibers to get a beautiful yarn.
Flax is a classic fiber, albeit very different than wool. It’ll easily become another joy of spinning after you learn new techniques to manage its particular characteristics. This class teaches you quick ways to dress a distaff with long-line flax, wet-spin line or roving, and scour finished yarns. While fibers are provided, you’ll bring a spinning wheel or medium-weight spindle.
March 18-19, 2017, 9AM – 4PM at Richfield Fellowship Hall, 3909 Broadview Rd. Richfield, OH 44286.
Cost $150 ($170 non-members) – materials fee TBA
Open to other guilds after Jan 30, 2017
