August 11-15, 2013 Sunday through Thursday (4 nights)
Practice weaving, spinning, and knitting with women who love working with fibers. Learn new skills, create beautiful products, share your stories, and have fun. You’ll join the Pendle Hill Spiders, women who gather yearly to work creatively and share their spiritual journeys. Come with basic skills in the craft you choose, and bring your own materials, tools, and projects. Receive guidance and instruction as needed, try new techniques and designs, and grow creatively and spiritually.
“Sara has an exhaustive knowledge of her art, and endless patience in sharing techniques and skills with others.” I am leaving this weekend with “a larger and stronger web of women supporting each other.”
$570/shared room; $685/private room; $415/commuter
