John C. Campbell Folk School has been on my To Do list for ages. Have you heard the stories, too? Life-changing weaving workshops, watercolor classes in the misty mountain mornings, new friends made during the fragrant, wooded walk to dinner.
I had the good fortune to be Judith MacKenzie’s assistant last week at the Folk School for her Spinning Recycled Materials workshop. We all had a blast! Everyone in the workshop did a great job and created an impressive range of yarns—from fine recycled cashmere yarns frosted with kid mohair to handpainted paper yarns.
You can see the studio windows beneath the porch in this photo. It is a beautiful, open room—it also happens to be stocked with spinning wheels, combs, cards, dyepots, and anything else you might need!
