Like minded spinners attended this two day workshop, and together we experimented with the techniques shown to us by Lexi. Lexi's approach is from the artistic perspective, and it really inspired me to consider a new approach with my colour choices.
The spinners who attended are going to start an Art Yarn Spinning Group here in Melbourne, so I am really chuffed about that. It is so good to get together with like minded people, it makes you feel part of something and gives you support when you're having a fibre challenge.
Well, off to the Victorian Hand Weavers and Spinners Guild today, so that I can check out their new shop front premises! I am really looking forward to it and will post about it later.
