Dying and Spinning Silk Hankies

May 18 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Event Navigation

Silk hankies are luscious squares of silk fiber, each one made by stretching a single silkworm cocoon over a frame.  They dye in vibrant colors and spin up into beautiful and unique yarn. During this workshop, you’ll dye a stack of hankies in colors of your choice, and learn to spin some already dyed and dried.  The hankies you dye will go home with you for spinning once they are dry. Students should bring a drop spindle or spinning wheel.

One, two-hour session.  $65.  Maximum of six students.

Instructor:  Melanie Perkins
