Hedge Riding with Wool & Spindle
Taught via Zoom
“Sit a spell and spin with me, spin into the dark mystery, with wool and spindle, intent and twine, we cross the hedge and seek the divine.”
With a little history, folklore, and hands-on practice, this is an introductory workshop to using one of the many modalities in fibercraeft--transforming wool into yarn. Spinning, however, is so much more than turning wool into yarn, the process and its symbolism is full of endless discovery. It’s one of the ways I am able to access the great mystery, cross the hedge, and honor that which came before me and that which will come after.
Highlights of this workshop include:
-Delving into the lore that surrounds the powers that spin fate from around the world.
-Discussing ways that thread and yarn fit into our magickal workings.
-Understanding how spinning can be a practice to help us connect more deeply with ourselves, our ancestors and the divine.
**Please note that this class IS beginner friendly however, knowing the basics of handspinning with either a drop spindle or supported spindle is required. To learn how to start spinning, feel free to watch my signature Sticks & Stones Learn to Spin class for FREE at IGTV on my Instagram page.
