Date and Time: Friday, March 22, 2024,10:30 - 2:00 (half hour break for lunch)

CANCELLED TILL NEXT YEAR - Spinning Mohair, the fibre from the Angora goat with Linda Raven.  Join me to explore “mohair”. We'll spin it, ply it, buckle it and learn to create a brushed mohair. Participants must have reasonable control over their wheel and it would be better to have a foot powered wheel with scotch tension or a double drive band or Irish tension.

Prerequisite: Must have some experience spinning with all types of wool and ready to try spinning Mohair. Students must bring their own wheel to the Workshop with scotch tension or a double drive band.

Instructor: Linda Raven is an accomplished instructor and spinner.  Her extensive experience as a spinner, weaver and knitter has provided her with hands-on knowledge of what makes a good yarn for use in spinning, weaving and knitting. Linda’s accomplished weaving can be found for sale at the Salish Sea Shop, Bowser.
