As the MoAS Office learns about online A&S classes, we will post them here.

Other Locations for online A&S classes:

Tuesday, August 11: The History of English Blackwork Embriodery. 7:00 pm EDT. Instructor: Mistress Amy Webbe. A Discussion of English Blackwork Embroidery. We’ll examine the extant pieces in the archaeological record and look at design, stitches, materials, and motifs. Meeting link:

Friday, August 14: Introduction to Spinning. 7:00 pm EDT. Instructor: Caera Fitzpatrick. Humans have been spinning longer than they’ve been drawing and writing. Why? Because it almost magically turns plants and the fur of animals into thread, yarn and rope. This class will teach you the basics of this ageless skill. If you would like to work along with the instructor, here are the supplies you will need:

  • Drop spindle or Turkish spindle (avoid Navaho, Tahkli, and Supported/Russian spindles for now)
  • Spinning fiber, preferably wool (Spinning fiber may come as top, roving or batts. Raw, or unprocessed, wool is not recommended)
  • Where to get it: (wool is in the “protein fiber” category) or (aka WEBS; use the menu at top left to find spinning supplies). There are many other excellent suppliers that can also be found with a search like spinning supplies, spinning fiber or drop spindles. Consider supporting small local businesses as a few yarn stores carry supplies. Etsy is also a great place to look.
