A Silk Sampler – $45 + $25 Supply Fee
Saturday, September 20th – 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm
Bombyx, Tussah, Eri, and Muga are all silk fibers, but differ in feel and appearance. In this hands-on class we will discuss the origins and qualities of these four types of silk, and explore the commercial preparations available. Using several drafting techniques to spin samples of each, students will have an opportunity to record the results of their spinning, and discuss methods of finishing the resulting yarn.
Supplies: Spinning wheel, empty bobbin, scissors, pencil or pen.
