The Empress' Cup of Tea Workshop ~ with Mary Lessman, Master Spinner - June 25th
Join the Prince George Fiber Arts Guild for a class recreating the fable of the discovery of silk. Spend one day learning the mysteries of the cocoon. Hankies and caps have the longest fibers you will use for spinning. Learn how to open them up and draft for beautiful, lustrous yarns. Reel silk for the strongest and most sparkly of the silk threads. With more cocoons we will learn how hankies are made for spinning. With your hand made and commercial hankies we will use acid dyes to capture your favorite colors of the rainbow. Feel like an Empress, have some tea and learn about the magic of the silk cocoon.
