North Country Shifu is an experimental workshop in which you will explore
the gentle art of cutting, spinning, and weaving and dyeing kozo. We will
experiment using drop spindles, and bobbin winders (acting as spinning
wheels) to spin cut kozo, and then weave on different simple looms. You
will experiment with a natural dyes including black walnut. The Morgan
Conservatory has been growing Kozo for the ...past five years in their
garden and you will have the chance to work with some Kozo paper that was
grown, harvested, beaten and pulled into sheets right here in Cleveland.
At the end of the workshop you will leave with a sampling of spun, woven,
and dyed kozo. This is a class for sampling, for beginners, or for more
experienced weavers come with a warped loom and weave with your spun kozo.
