Instructor: Karyn Belknap of Ten Good Sheep. Registration required as class size is limited. Cost: $100.00 per person.
Yarn and fabric production isn't fast, so we'll take it slow. Together we'll discuss the history of spinnable fibers and tools on the Eastern Shore, shepherding, fiber prep and spinning. After learning and practicing the basics of spinning, you'll test drive a variety of spinning wheels and take home a Schacht drop spindle and fiber to continue your spinning adventures.
Karyn is a shepherdess and Professional Juried Virginia Artisan. In addition to a yarn and fiber shop near Onancock, her company provides natural fiber products to retailers across the country.
