During this virtual class, Mary Underwood of Front Porch Textiles opens the doors of our imagination to the world of camel fibers, camel husbandry and racing, and to how a camel saddle is created. Join us as she treats us to a glimpse of Mongolian life and culture from her travels around that country.
Underwood is a hand spinner and weaver who works with natural fibers. Her yarns and weaving are intended for functional use, for apparel or the home. She is a member of local, state, and international weaving guilds and groups. Her interests extend to those who grow, raise, prepare, and dye the fibers and yarns she uses. Her constant thirst for adventure has led to multiple trips to Mongolia to ride horses and document the textile traditions there.
