Sanjo Silk has partnered with O-Five Rare Tea Bar https://www.o5tea.com to bring you a workshop that will delight the senses.
A flight of three teas and 7 silk fibres awaits you. The tea selection has been specially curated by O-Five Tea, and the silk offering from the countries of Japan, China and India, countries steeped in the tradition of tea pairs perfectly. Fibres you'll be spinning include Japanese Mawata, Indian Eri, Tasar and Peduncle Tasar, and 3 unique new fibres - Bombyx, Tasar and a blend - from China. Kim will guide you through the nuances of spinning these amazing fibres, and will provide lots of Master Spinner tips on how to maximize the character of each.
Along with your materials, you will receive a coupon from Sanjo Silk Ltd. for 10% off your next fibre or yarn purchase. You'll also receive a QR code for 20% off your next O-Five Tea loose tea or matcha purchase.
