Treesa Germany’s background includes ceramics, jewelry and most recently fibers. She has an MFA and did post graduate work at Cranbrook Academy. Treesa is a lifelong knitter. Seven years ago, she began dyeing and spinning fleece for one of a kind yarns. She is a newbie Saori weaver. Treesa’s Etsy shops: Gray Moon Fibers(yarn), Gray Moon Wearables(accessories).

Learn how to prepare washed fleece for spinning or felting. We’ll work with combs and hand cards to produce rolags or sliver and the drum carder to provide batts or roving. From dyed fibers we can create art bats for spinning unique rustic yarns. We can discuss what preparation is best for different kinds of projects. We will also make a quick diz for creating roving.

 Materials Fee: $25  Includes several ounces of dyed and or natural wool/mohair fleece,  material for diz.
