Sunday Lecture: The Story of Inglenook Fibers with Macrina and Stephie
What is nun-fluff? What makes Inglenook Fibers unique? From the makers at Inglenook Fibers- a talk about how they used their singular background in mural painting (iconography) and applied it to making complex and interesting fiber for spinners.
Join Macrina and Stephie, the Greek Orthodox nuns behind Inglenook Fibers, as they tell us about their fiber journey from their first spinning wheel purchase years ago to their wildly popular batts and braids of today.
Class Fee: $5, payable at the door on a first-come, first-served basis.
Macrina and Stephie joined forces in 1999 when they became an icon painting team at Holy Nativity Convent. They studied painting and other mediums intensely for many years, often traveling to see the ancient examples of this art in person in Greece, Serbia and Russia. They turned their color training towards fiber in 2011 after being introduced to spinning and knitting. They are color nerds and are always inspired by the world around them, and love to bring it into spinners hands with dyeing and carding it into a fiber form.
They now divide their time between painting and the fiber arts in their studio in Brookline, MA.
