Instructor:Alanna Wilcox
Spinning Colors

Color can be an inspiring and intimidating force when creating your own yarns. This workshop will focus on how the color choices a spinner makes prior to sitting at the wheel influence the final outcome of color in their projects. It will help you as a fiber artist achieve the color combinations you want rather than making mud. Fiber preparation choices will be discussed and then techniques for spinning color will be the main focus.

We will cover 8+ different ways a spinner can create variations of the same color, and 2-3 of those yarns will involve carding. 

Skill Level Required:  Intermediate - spinning a continuous yarn and basic plying (2 ply yarn)

Homework: N/A
