Silk Tasting Menu (Part I and II)
Materials fee: $30
Have you ever been confused by terms such as brick, lap, mawata, hankie, waste, noil, muga, eri, tussah or mulberry silk? Well, this is the tasting class for you! Participants will feast on a variety of silks available to spinners today. Participants will also blend silk with other exotic fibres to create luxurious yarns for that special project.
Students will need to bring:
· Spinning wheel with extra bobbins or spindles (several weights/sizes)
· Lazy kate
· Hand cards
Equipment should be in good working order, and students must know how to use their equipment, whether it is a wheel or a spindle.
