Summer Workshop with Heather Winslow

What on earth is Lyocell? Why would anyone combine cotton, silk, or merino wool with stainless steel or copper into a yarn? Aren't pineapples and soy beans for eating and bamboo for building? What does a combination of silk and ramie feel like? How does one deal with lycra? What is seacell and what do you do with crepe yarns? Learn the answers to all these questions and more during this fun filled class using new millennium fibres. Just imagine what a unique project you can then weave when you get home.
