Learning to spin wool!

~15th May 2014~
Sharon O'Brien who works at "The Hub"
 a.k.a Whangarei I-Site did a little weaving
 on the Community Tapestry Project today.

~17th May 2014~
Community Project Tapestry Master, Spinner and Weaver 
Beverley Compter brought in her Spinning Wheel today
 Her intentions? To teach Naoko and The BACH
 Saturday staff (Briar and Julia) how to spin.
 Beverley made it look SO EASY!!
  Meanwhile, Kirralee and Anja Brown from 
Tutukaka had a go weaving on the mini-looms
Kirralee is 6 years old...
 ...and her sister Anja is 8. Both girls played netball
 this morning and with their Mum and Dad.
 Naoko tries spinning under the 
watchful eye of Beverley.
 Beverley was SO patient with us!
 I couldn't get mine to "grab" ...
 ...and it ended up twisting REAL GOOD..haha!
 I have a whole new appreciation for 
spinning but not going to give up!
Cathy, from Onerahi has done tapestry weaving
and so she worked on a more challenging area 
where two colours are woven concurrently.
