Comments on Olds Level 3 course

May 28 to June 1, 2012, I had the pleasure of being part of the Olds Master Spinner program this time in Level 3. We were taught by Michelle Boyd, a very knowledgeable Master  Spinner graduate of the Olds program.

With her very enthusiastic spirit she passed along much information we could all use in our daily spinning. This time around we dealt with much of the technical information as twist & count systems to determine grist. New fibres to us were cotton & silk. The class boiled & stretched coccoons into silk mawhattas & made a silk hankie. We also produced 25 different colours from one dyebath. Amazing stuff!! Many demos.

For myself, this is valuable info to have, understand & be able to use.
