A big thank you to Katie for an excellent workshop...which we all really enjoyed! 
We had an amazing day, leaning new and interesting techniques to create some gorgeous art yarns. It took spinning to a whole new level!
The skills needed for Art Yarn Spinning definitely helps you to become a better all-round spinner; as you need to be doing so many things all at the same time, whilst maintaining good wheel and drafting control. Ha!
At times we were all concentrating so hard that there wasn't a sound in the room...but oh were we pleased when it all came together and we saw that we were actually making a beehive!
Very many thanks to Katie for all her patience and expert tuition.
