wool-yarn-notebookSpinning is a creative act. In our craft, we push the boundaries of our creativity within the framework of technical know-how. Whether we are spinning yarns that are traditional or innovative, turning an idea into a reality depends on our ability to match a set of learned skills with an aesthetic vision. Kate will share with you how she uses a spinner's creativity notebook to capture fleeting color combinations and pattern ideas, while keeping nofuss, yet accurate samples while creating a textile. You will leave with a spinner's notebook, several of your own color-texture studies, and a new way to capture your creativity. 

Participant to bring:
Several spindles or a spinning wheel in good working condition, niddy noddy, and lazy kate. You will need handcards for this class. Some handcards will be available to borrow.
