Last week end I was invited, by Kent Guild of Spinners, Dyers and Weavers, to tutor a Creative Spinning workshop.
This annual members event runs from 11.15am to 3.30pm so there wasn't a lot of time for them to get their heads round Creative Spinning using an image as a source of inspiration.
Here are a few photographs of what can be achieved in so short a length of time!
Inspiration ranged from photographs of gardens;
Images from gardening magazines;
Images from the front of greetings cards;
And images from other magazines.
All in all the results were spectacular and all the members who took part felt they'd learnt a great deal about new techniques and how to interpret images into beautiful, inspirational yarns.
By the way, I drove down on the Friday evening, so as to be fresh for the start of the workshop, and stayed with Kent Guild member Valerie Selden and her husband John. They run a lovely B & B in the village of Mersham, called Glebe Place and if you're looking for a place to stop on the way to France or to explore Kent then try their hospitality!
