November 6th:

Viv showed us how to create some of her wonderful art yarn creations. As usual it all looked so easy when Viv did it but we seemed to be all fingers and thumbs when we got back to our wheels. There was a lot of ooohs and aaaarhs and a few oh no's. But we all had a great time and managed to create some lovely yarns. A huge thankyou to Joy for the wonderful venue and stunning views to compliment the stunning yarns

April 2015:

After admiring Viv's art yarn for such a long time an enthusiastic group of spinners attended her art yarn workshop at Battery Point in April 2015. Everyone arrived with wonderfully coloured tops and we set to work learning the skill of blending colourful rolags then learning to spin thick and thin singles. Taking a little longer to master this we threw Viv's timetable into disarray but she continued on in style.

After a break for lunch we headed into the world of plying coils. WOOHOO! - how beautiful they all were. I think we will have a full show and tell table next meeting.
