class two, day one

 my kind of sign
 the view from here (i'm at the head, 
or the foot i suppose, 
of the table)
 prepping lokta for spinning
 and they're off!
 the room quiets as 
 spinning begins
 lovely to see this
 as the skills build
 hands and eyes adapt
 this new skill
 though some use unorthodox methods,
 as they relax into the 
 peace of spindle spinning
 the work table
white on white
with a few green mats

Do wish I was there but Queensland has had its compensations.

such intense concentration - must be that they are truly involved in their work, which means they are having a good experience. it's over a 100 here - would mind a cool breeze (can you put some in the next post please...) cheers

Everyone is so engaged and that's excellent. I envy you the people-in-one-place / name tag aspects! Oh, and the down under aspect as well :-).
Good on you!

I probably should know the answer to this from descriptions of this class but are these first time spinners? Or are they experienced spinners of other fibers? Just curious AND envious.

'Engaged' is truly the right word here. Velma (san) I don't know you but I feel so proud of you! Right on. The wheels are turning so smoothly in your class you can almost hear the music hum.

Thanks, Velma! I was hoping there would be hope for me to someday learn to spin paper even tho I've no experience spinning anything.
