Darning Socks and Home Spun Yarn

Join us in the Urban Weaver Studio on Monday nights for a series of Woolley Workshops led by local fiber artist Penny

6:00 - 8:00pm

October 1 - Sock darning

Bring along your holey socks, an apple or orange to stuff in the sock as a darning base, some yarn to darn with, and a needle with a large eye (a darning needle, tapestry needle or needle for sewing hand knit sweaters). Make those holed socks whole again!
No cost

October 8 & 15 – Drop spindle basics

Make yourself a drop spindle and learn to spin your own yarn.
Material costs:  $2/drop spindle using supplied materials and $2 for fleece/fiber to spin with

October 22 – Natural dyes

Learn how to naturally dye your newly spun yarn using local plant materials. Dye pots/baths will be available in the studio for your use.  Solar dyeing will also be demonstrated.   
No cost
No workshops will be held in November.
Planned workshops for December include learning the ‘2 needle method’ for turning your spun yarn into ‘sideways’ socks.
