Have you ever wondered how to spin thread or to weave, or where fabric comes from? Ever admired all the various colors of yarn and wondered how they got to be that way?
If so, this workshop is for you! With demonstration and guidance from textile & weaving master, Cat Lee, learn basics and beyond about natural fibers, spinning, weaving and natural dyes. Cost is $50 and registration can be made through Eventbrite. Space is limited.
More about Cat Lee:
Since she was a kid, Cat has been playing with child sized knitting machines and looms. She has worked cross-stitch, crewel, latch hook, knitting, crochet, macramé, and finally weaving.
In 1998, she was able to pursue a lifelong dream, and bought a small 10 acre farm with her husband David in Central Ohio. A couple of city slickers, neither had any idea what they were doing. Mowing and weed whacking got them nowhere, soooo, they bought 5 little angora goats. They had the pasture cleaned up in no time at all! So, off they went to The Little House in Clyde, Ohio and purchased the first of several spinning wheels. She joined Malabar Farm Spinners and Weavers guild, and learned about spinning, weaving, and natural dyes.
Cat and her husband moved back to the Cleveland area in 2004, where Cat started teaching at a local yarn shop. She teaches spinning, weaving, and some dye classes.
She is a member of the Textile Art Alliance, an affiliate group of the Cleveland Museum of Art and sells her work at some art galleries and the occasional art show, focusing primarily on functional (kitchen) art pieces and fabric for clothing.
Workshop registration investment includes the cost of take home materials.
