Hi, I’m Dee, and I love wool! The whole process of seeing a sheep in a field, watching it being sheared, sorting and deciding how to use the fleece I find fascinating. Spinning the fleece, picking something like blackberries or forsythia leaves to dye it with, then weaving or knitting it into something beautiful and useful, is very satisfying.
Where possible I use local and/or recycled materials to minimise my impact on the environment. I have been teaching both adults and children for many years and look forward to sharing my skills and passions with you.
At StraightCurves, I teach spinning, weaving and dyeing with both natural materials and indigo.
