It may seem a little early to be talking about school, but there are a lots of learning opportunities coming up in the next few months. The posts over this holiday weekend will fill you in.
First up: the local spinning guild, The Peachtree Handspinners, is having a weekend retreat on 5-7 August at the Lyndon House Arts Center in Athens. Plying the Arts will feature classes from 20 different teachers over three days. The cost for most sessions is $35 or $45, and you can have lunch provided to you on Saturday or Sunday for $6 each day. Classes cover spinning, but also knitting, weaving, dyeing, kumihimo, and needle felting. This is a beautiful venue and a wonderful range of classes and a market! The downside? Registration closes on Tuesday 5 July. See the brochure and register online by going to www.worldinaspin.com.
