The Greater Los Angeles Spinning Guild is excited to announce that
Gayle Vallance will be teaching the following workshops on April 26th to
28th, Spin Like a Viking, Consistency and Twist, Spinning Longwools, and
Spinning Silk. Full descriptions of the workshops with the dates and fees
are at the end of the article. At the April meeting Gayle will be giving a
lecture on Viking Fiber history.
Gayle is a perennial student of all things related to spinning, weaving
and the history of fiber. She has had articles published in Spin-Off
magazine. She has a master spinner certificate from Olds College in
Alberta, the technical spinning level from the Handweavers’ Guild of
America, and the basic weaving level from the Canadian Weavers’ Guild.
She uses color, texture and fiber to create unique yarns, relating what
we do now to what has been done by the artisans from our past.
Please see the February Newsletter for more information on the workshops.
