These Pluckyfluff workshops are two full days of class that cover a broad range of spinning techniques from my books Handspun Revolution, Intertwined and HandSpun (due out Fall '11). But these techniques are just a place to start, the point of this class is to investigate and develop your own creative ideas. There will be ample opportunity to try new things one-on-one, or get the whole class involved! The goal of the class is to develop an artistic awareness within students so that they can see fiber and yarn as a medium for creative expression. Bring an open mind and you're sure to leave with a smile (oh, and...LOTS of cool yarn!)

ANNOUNCEMENT: I am taking a two-year hiatus to focus on other projects after the following classes are over. I will only have one or two select workshops per year for 2014 and after.
Interested in HOSTING a workshop? Email me to find out about organizing a Camp Pluckyfluff in your area. Most traveling camps only need a minimum of 12-14 students to make it happen, so contact me if you think there's interest in your neck of the woods. Hosts get to take the class for free in exchange for some organizing.
