Marge’s Mill tour

Twotwelve artists toured the studio of Marge Mills last Friday. The lucky group were given a lesson of the process of cleaning, dyeing, picking and milling wool into roving. Marge showed us each step, and told us a bit of her wide-ranging knowledge about wool. She even grows the sheep, and that’s about as far back as you can go into the process of knitting or felting. It was a very enjoyable session. We were steeped in color and texture. Here are a couple pictures.
