About the Event

Fiber Foundations: Spinning

Sunday, July 9 @ 7:00pm With Gabe Duggan Seen in mythologies across many cultures, the traditional technique of spinning binds fibers together forms strands (thread, yarn, or rope) that can be used to construct cloth. This fundamental action is necessary to twist elements together; from fine qiviut lace, to innovations in aerospace and biomedical engineering. Students will make their own spindle and learn and practice the dynamics of spinning. The significance of technology (eg. basic spindles from sticks) will be discussed and utilized. More advanced technology such as spinning wheels will be discussed and demonstrated. Students will learn and practice this technique with supplied materials and space.
