Art Yarns

I just had the most enjoyable weekend I have had in a long time and met (and made) some wonderful new friends along the way.

A group of us attended Lexi Boeger's (aka Pluckyfluff) art yarn class at Footscray. For those who do not know anything about the talented Lexi, have a look here http://www.pluckyfluff.com/. We made numerous different yarns over the two days, even more techniques than are shown here (I didn't attempt the tail spin nor fabric - I want to do the former in my own time and I have done fabric spinning before). I am so inspired at the moment.

I look forward to meeting my new friends very soon - in fact we will be meeting monthly xx.

Core spinning and knots -

Navaho plying (eats up yarn) -

Mohairy (gets up your nose) -

Core spinning/quick coils/plying -

Here are some other photos from the workshop - have a look at Janet's awesome Tail spin (she is wearing it).
