Bad Girls Spinning Club/Taught by Linda Scharf on Sunday Morning
In Linda’s own words:
Well, we won’t be sneaking outside to smoke, but maybe our wheels will be
smokin’. Let’s hope so!
If I’m going to take the time to spin fibers, I’d like the time to be well
spent, and for me this means that I am fully engaged with the process,
enveloped in curiosity, wonder and learning. Let’s work/play in this 2
hours that we have together to remember what you want out of spinning and
We’ll be creating original yarns and remembering what the process is for
engaging deeply with our Selves, the materials and tools. We’ll be very
aware of our senses and we’ll be tapping into our core to find methods for
doing this on our own. We’ll learn some techniques for working with
perceived failure, feeling stuck and more.
It’s best if you can take a half hour to an hour with yourself in the week
before we meet to ask yourself what it is that you want to learn about
spinning. Is it to stay inspired to spin, to explore new materials, to
learn new and old techniques and/or to figure out what to do with your
yarn after you spin it? If you can make some notes and bring your notebook
to class, then we can find out what we have in common and also, where each
has unique concerns.
My background is in art. You can see my work at my site: Stoneleafmoon
(http://www.stoneleafmoon.com) A long time meditation practice and
interest in the spiritual/energetic aspects of life influence my art. I
enjoy spinning fibers because it’s a good way for me to combine sculpture,
painting and a love of color.
Whether you’ve been creating dynamic yarns for a while or feel like your
spinning mojo got lost somewhere along the way, you’ll go away energized
by the time we’ve all spent together!
