Spend a week learning the rewarding craft of making your own yarn for knitting and weaving. Learn to sort a fleece, tease and card wool, and then spin and ply it. You'll wash your yarns and color them with natural dyes. Advanced spinners may bring their own fibers and spend the week perfecting their skills spinning silk, flax or mohair. If you have your own spinning wheel, feel free to bring it. Ages 16 to adult.
