February 18th: Wacky Fibres
Talk and Workshop by Jane Dean
On Saturday at the Main Guild meeting we have an external speaker, Jane Deane who is coming to give us a talk titled Whacky Fibres. Jane is a textile designer and tutor working with fibre, yarn and dyes. Her talk is about unusual fibres that you may not have considered spinning before, and the environmental implications of these fibres.
On Sunday Jane will run a workshop which will give the participants the opportunity to design a yarn from an inspiration, eg photo, found object, fibre type, or perhaps to have a play with some of the fibres discussed in her talk.
There are 12 places available on the workshop at a cost to members of £40 and non-members £45. Please contact Roz by email Roz.email@example.com or phone 07570481049 if you would like to book a place. Roz can also forward you a booking form with more details of the course.
