2016 craft - Spinning with Natural Fibers

Spinning with Natural Fibers

with Blair

Hand spinning is a meditative activity that brings one in touch with the thread that has clothed humanity for the last 20,000 years.  I invite participants to spin their own stories into that cloth.  Bringing forth the understanding of the time and focus that was invested by all our ancestors collectively in providing warmth and beauty to the bodies and homes of the past.  Modern spinning is a hobby that honors that time, beauty and the knowledge of the people that came before us.  Through the last 24 years as a spinner, I have not lost sight of the fun and love of the art and hope to share both of those with participants.
