Fleece to Garment Series

January 27, 2018, 10:00am - January 27, 2018, 3:00pm

This exciting class series offers the unique opportunity to go from fleece to finished garment. The series provides a wonderful way to learn the process hands-on, have personal instructions, a community of other fiber enthusiasts to be around, and set deadlines to help complete your project (we all have a few unfinished projects in the closet). This class is designed to challenge intermediate and advanced spinners with the adventure of choosing a fleece, preparing it for spinning, discovering the merits of that fleece, and finally matching it to a garment design. January 27th, Saturday, 10am to 3pm – Shearing and Fleece selection – Students will see the shearing, pick their fleece, and then learn about parts of the fleece, how to skirt, and how to match the qualities of that fleece to a garment. February 4th, Sunday, 1pm to 4pm – Scouring Fleeces & Beginning Design Discussion – We begin the process by learning how to scour (wash) the fleece in the class. We will examine a variety of knitted samples in different needle sizes and look at different prepping to begin to plan the design of the garment. We will have 4 different designs to choose for your garment. February 18th, Sunday, 1pm to 4pm – Prepping Fleeces –Spinning with curls, spinning woolen, or spinning semi-worsted are techniques that have different effects in the finished garment. What works best for the fleece? Will you card or spin from the lock? We look at how the prepping of the fleece influences the design of the garment. March 3rd, Saturday, 10am to 3pm – Open Studio – This is an unsupervised open studio day for students to use Windrush Farm’s carding equipment. March 18th, Sunday, 1pm to 4pm – Designing Your Yarn – Start spinning your roving or washed fleece into yarn. Try curls, fleece carded for woolen spun or worsten spun, combed fleece, flick carded lock spinning, or look to novelty spinning for special accents. April 8th, Sunday, 1pm to 4pm – Project In Process – Bring in your in-progress project. Are you stuck? Need encouragement and feedback? This class will share all the projects and offers specialized help for completion of the garment. May 6th, Sunday, 10am to 4pm – Spin In & Fashion Show – This is a great way to end the class. Hang out for the day spinning and knitting in the morning. After a yummy pot luck lunch everyone will show off their projects, no matter how far along. This is open to all spinners, knitters, and friends. $550 (includes fleece) For more details and registration go to our website www.windrushfarm.wordpress.com
