The Art of Spinning Paper

Judith MacKenzie

Thursday All Day

Spinning paper is an old and honorable art; it’s also fun and easy to do. It makes beautiful, washable and oh-so-wearable yarn. In this workshop, we’ll spin several different types of paper, including mulberry, recycled and handmade. We’ll learn how to spin a variety of diameters, produce different surfaces and textures and look at interesting ways to use these wonderful and unusual yarns.

Skill level: Students should be able to spin a continuous thread and have a good relationship with their wheel or e-spinner.
