This is a condensed course in the characteristics of fiber for fiber artists. Weavers, spinners, knitters, and textile artists will study fibers that are both natural and manufactured. You will learn to identify fibers using the microscope and several other testing methods. You will study how these fibers react to dyes, heat, and chemicals in order to preserve them or alter them artisitically. We will cover the proper methods of care. Bring beverages and a lunch. (A microwave and refrigerator are available for use.)

Class Limit: 6
