Hand Spinning Clinic with Norman Kennedy
January 28 & 29, 2012 - Round Hill, Virginia
A rare opportunity to study with Norman Kennedy, Master Weaver & Spinner! Mr. Kennedy was awarded a National Heritage Fellowship in 2003 for his work in preserving and teaching the techniques and knowledge of traditional textile production from his native Scotland.
The focus for this class will be traditional spinning, on different types of hand spindles, on flyer wheels and on the great wheel. Tuning your wheel for optimum performance, sewing new drive bands, fiber preparation – bring your questions and concerns! Norman is particularly knowledgeable in the spinning traditions of Scotland and around the world, and will share much of the folklore and stories that he has accumulated in his travels and studies.
Participants at any level are welcome. Bring spindles, low wheel & great wheel
A small fiber sampler will be provided for use in class
The fee for the class is $150. There will be a modest supply fee.
