Workshop Spinning hand painted roving 8 ways by Marsha Weinert.
This is a 5 hour workshop. Admit it: handpainted, multicolor rovings are as seductive as chocolate. So you’ve accumulated quite a few—or are longing to do so—but you can’t quite figure out how to make the colors “sing” in the finished yarn as beautifully as they do in the roving. Come learn eight (yes, 8!!) ways to compose a symphony from the “notes” in your wool! Students will be provided with handpainted roving from which to work; feel free to bring roving about which you have questions! This program will be held at the Mifflinburg Community Park weather permitting.
