WHAT ARE THEY UP TO?

SPINNING & DYEING
ADVANCED 3-D ART
spinning wheels, BFL roving, food coloring, microwave

Seniors Jacqueline Yu & Shreya Sheth are learning to spin & dye their own yarns. 
Both of them learned to spin & dye in the Beginning 3-D class years ago on a coat hanger wire.
But now they are moving up to the big time with the wheels.
For this assignment they dyed their roving first using food coloring then spun it up on our Ashford SpinningWheels.

Here they are learning this fairly difficult new gobal skill,
 practicing first on some undyed Blue Faced Leicester wool roving
 I purchased from my good friend and mentor Lori Lawson of Capistrano Fiber Arts.
To see what they made with their spun & dyed yarns stay turned for later in this week.
