I spent yesterday teaching all dyeing, color, and all about yarns and fiber. It was a really wonderful class where everyone was curious and intrigued by what it takes to color fiber and yarn and all the ins and out and why and hows.
I feel so lucky that I get to teach and share what I know. So much stimulating discussion and fiber fun! I think my favorite part is that the space I make allows people to create and I get to be a part of that creativity and joy.
Color makes people happy and coloring yarn really makes yarn loving fiber artists happy. It was a busy week this week playing catch up and Desiree was out sick most of the week so that made more work for me so to be honest I was not really looking forward to working Saturday too. But…15 minutes and I have forgotten all of that and off we go on our dye journey of the day.
Everyone created stunning skeins of yarn and walked away happy and hopefully a little more color confident and empowered.
Lots and lots of color! There’s still room in the rest of our dye classes for the summer if you’d like to join me for color and fiber exploration. Also if there is a class you like so see me teach please do let me know.
And…since we are talking fiber and color!
I’ve been thinking about our spinning club for awhile now and how I miss sharing the yarn making and fiber dyeing joy. So…I am re-inventing our Rockin’ Whorl Club by adding other fiber/spinning experts to be a part of our learning journey. I know…it’s a good idea isn’t it. We get to experience different takes on spinning and yarn making. Diverse perspectives always good! Our first theme is color!!
I hope you’ll join us as the spinning wheel turns on our new fiber adventure!!
Okay my lovelies I will post more tomorrow but I need to go meet Karen and get some fresh air before Monday hits tomorrow!!
