"Introduction to Silkwork"
Starting from silkworm cocoons, students will learn three different methods of creating usable fiber. Village-style reeling yields a charming and rustic yarn; fine reeling makes a variety of fine yarns, and degumming for hankies creates a versatile fiber form that can be used later on for spinning, felting, and other fiber arts. This class will not cover spinning from prepared silk fibers such as sliver or batts.Registration here
