In Gentle Art of Plying, you’ll go beyond the basics of plying with Judith MacKenzie as she illustrates how to unlock the extensive world of yarn design and fabric construction. Judith understands the deep technical nature of spinning yarn in order to achieve the ideal fabric later on. She’s not afraid to take you above and beyond ordinary techniques to create beautiful and unique yarns.
"Plying is amazing, what it does; all the different things it can do. It’s the basis of many, many textiles. And I think we’ll talk a bit about why you would ply and why you would not. One of the interesting things about plying is that it makes a yarn that is stable, relaxed and calm." — Judith MacKenzie

“Excellent class. Ms. MacKenzie provides clear instructions on the basics of plying and also fun things to try. I had a skein that I was ready to toss. After going through the class a couple of times, I was able to rescue the wool. I highly recommend this to anyone learning how to spin. Ms. MacKenzie is a master craftswoman and a master teacher. ”
