Processing Wool: From Fleece to Yarn

  • Hawthorne Arts Complex 13040 Cerise Avenue Hawthorne, CA, 90250 United States (map)

Ever wondered how a sheep fleece is turned into beautiful hanks of yarn? Learn the fundamentals of processing wool with Anna Zinsmeister. She will lead you through how to clean the fleece, how to card the fibers, and how to spin yarn on a drop spindle.

We will have a pre-workshop meet on Saturday, October 13th at CSULB to clean the majority of the fleeces so they are prepped in time for the workshop. Please RSVP here before the end of the day on October 11th.

Date: Sunday, November 11th from 10am to 4pm

Location:
Hawthorne Arts Complex
13040 Cerise Ave
Hawthorne, CA 90250

Workshop price includes material (plenty of clean fleece!) and a drop spindle to take home.
