Shifu: The Art of Japanese Paper Spinning
October 26, 4th Tuesday, 7:30 pm
Wolbach Farm, Sudbury, MA
Adele Harvey will be teaching us how to spin paper. Adele will fill us in of the history of spinning paper yarn in Japan. She also has many samples to examine. She will discuss various kinds of paper to use and demonstrate the process of preparing the paper, spinning it, and using the yarn in weaving. Then we will get to try our hands at the spinning process ourselves. Bring a hand-crank bobbin winder, a light to mid-weight drop spindle, or a spinning wheel and your curiosity.
