 Fiber Exploration

I talk a lot about fibers and preparation methods in other workshops, but it in this one is a hands-on seminar where the focus is on pure education. I will provide samples of various fibers including differences in breeds of sheep's wool, mohair, silk, and various exotic and odd materials. We will talk about their properties, what makes them work, and you will put together your own personal sample journal with all the neat things. A bit science class, a bit art class, all fun.
