Colorful Frolic a Success!

We’ve been hosting Frolics once or twice a year for a few years now – I’m pretty sure the first one was in January of 2009 – and every time we meet new friends, welcome new teachers and vendors, and most important of all, everyone learns something new!

The dyepots started bubbling early with Bjo Trimble’s indigo class. Check out the beautiful dark blue results!

The Color Blending class (pictured at the top) was very popular! Students received roving in red, yellow, blue, black, and white, and a color wheel – and just by blending the different fibers together with different amounts they each created a staggering 27 colors! We were happy to host a new teacher for that class, Michelle Lawrence of FunHouseFibers.com. Everyone is looking forward to see what she’ll teach us at our Retreat in June.

On the weaving side of things, we had classes in color patterns with warp & weft, 3/1 Twill, basic card/tablet weaving, the ram’s horn pattern, and advanced cardweaving students learned to weave their names.

Sadly, I can’t cover every class, but we do have a lot more photos from the Frolic on our Facebook page – and if you have photos to share, feel free to link them in the comments below!
