ACTIVITIES

September 25, 2021 we hosted a demonstration of the processes we follow for a Sheep to Shawl competition.  We look forward to resuming these competitions in August 2022 in conjunction with the Sheep Dog Trails at Grass Creek Park.

 

It was a beautiful day to work outside the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning.  Many people stopped by to ask questions and to watch us transform a fleece into a beautiful wearable garment.

We used a fleece from nearby Fortune Hill Farms.  It was a Romney fleece with many shades of grey.

The spinners used handcarders to prepare small sections of fibre for spinning.

We moved one of our floor looms outside to weave the larger shawl.  Another member shared how we can also weave scarves on our small rigid heddle looms.
