The tenth installment of filming from the ACC's Arrowmont School Workshops, June 1-8, 1971. On a 19th century spinning wheel, fiber artist Persis Grayson explains and demonstrates a myriad of spinning techniques and variations to a female interviewer. Although Grayson only uses flax fiber on the spinning wheel, she later demonstrates two methods of hand spinning with wool, camel, flax, and linen. In the final minutes of the interview, Grayson demonstrates carding: a method of untangling and straightening short strands of fiber by brushing them between two cards. In the second clip of this video, textile artist Meda Parker Johnson provides two dyeing demonstrations to a small group of participants. In the first demonstration, she applies dye to a twisted sheet of pima cotton. In the second, she uses of swatch of cloth to sample a variety of direct application techniques.
