Spinning Classes + more

A few classes that I'm teaching. ( website can't be updated at the moment, so I'm telling you here).

Art on a Stick/Art Yarns
(For beginners and advanced - you'll learn to spin yarn and this class will have an experimental focus/outlook. You can keep it simple or get as crazy as you want.)
Learn to spin funky, artful yarns on a spindle. Start with spindle basics, then explore different fibers and how they can be used to create offbeat yarns. If you have tried spindles before, try them again in a playful environment with an artist who has created yarns of every imaginable type.
Sunday, 1–5pm, April 11, 2010 (at The Eliot School, Boston, MA)

Note: Please register by 3PM, Friday April 9.
The Eliot School doesn't handle registrations after that point. If you want to register after that time, either email me ( or just show up, prepared to pay for class (cash or money order).

Crazy Quilts
For ages, people have combined leftover fabrics into crazy quilts, making beautiful assemblages embellished with embroidery. In this workshop, you will complete either a ten-inch square that you can incorporate into a larger quilt at home or a small child-size quilt.

Sculpture! Love the colors. Saw 2 of Deb Menz DVDs over the weekend and have been thinking of getting out my wheel again, and borrowing a drum carder or combs... Maybe...
