Group Workshops

In planning for 2007 are several group workshops to be held here at the Fiber Kingdom. These will either be taught by me (Sylvia Graham) or by a person with expertise in some special technique. A sampling of past workshop topics includes “Weaving a Nantucket Basket”, “Spinning Fine Linen Yarn”, “Spinning on a Charka”, “Dyeing with Cocchineal”, “Laminated Felt”, “Needle-felting” and “Blue & Green, Naturally”. As plans are finalized information will be posted here and on the Announcement and calendar page. If you are not local and need accommodations there are charming B&B’s available in the immediate area as well as seasonal camping facilities.

At Other Locations
Since the late 80’s I have conducted workshops for a number of different fiber associations and at varied locations. These include Mid-Atlantic Fiber Association, Fiber Fest, Michigan Fiber Festival, Northeast Handspinners Association, and the Maine Spinners Registry. I have also taught and/or lectured for guilds such as the Palisades, North Country and Third Star Fiber Artists Guilds of New Jersey, Nutmeg spinners of Connecticut and several other guilds in Vermont and New York. Topics range from “Chemical dyeing”, “Color Theory”, “Blending by Design”, “Natural Dyes (Indigo and Cocchineal)”, “Introduction to Felting”, to “The Angora and I”, and “A Cornucopia of Colors”. If you are interested in my conducting a single or multiple day workshop for your group, contact me for details.
