The hand spinner's advantage
This is a 37 minute webinar that was streamed live on September 19th 2020. The webinar has been edited and improved. It is in spoken English with optional captioning in English. The offers in the webinar have expired.
As hand spinners we have the opportunity to look for the essence of a fleece and make the most of it. We have an advantage, a privilege and an opportunity to get to know the fleece. By exploring a fleece we can make choices for preparation and spinning that are based on our knowledge and experience as spinners.
To me, this is a happy place. I want to be with my hands and my mind in the fleece and discover its hidden treasures. Working with a fleece gives me as much joy and peace of mind as spinning. It is not just something I go through to get to the spinning part. The sheep has given me the fleece and I want to make it shine. This perspective is what I want to share with you.
In the webinar I talk about
- What a fleece can teach us
- how we as hand spinners can make the superpowers of a fleece shine
- a mindful approach to working with fleece.
Towards the end of the webinar I also talk about the online Know your fleece.
