I can hear the call of the gulls, the slapping of the waves against the hull and the creak of the timbers as our ship is prepared for the exciting journey ahead. This is the time when anticipation can be tasted in the sea air, the time when adventure comes knocking and we can’t turn away, because we have done this before and we know what could happen…
Yes this is to tell you that my wheel is stowed, my fiber is baled and my tools are at the ready! We are about to relaunch our Flagship course, the Journey to the Golden Fleece Fiber Creativity Course, the spinning course that is different from any other, the one that pushes you to legendary heights of inspiration, offers insights into your own creative wellsprings, and gives you exercises and activities to help you get out of the spinning rut and into creating new yarns!
We have taken some time to relaunch our Journey course, and in that time we have been very busy behind the scenes, streamlining our ship, revisiting our maps and guides, and anticipating how to deal with any of the trials we may come across. We are very excited to be adding a new video component, much like we have done with the S3 Course, we will be adding a video for each module in which Arlene and Suzy discuss the contents of the module, the goals and different pathways there are to them, and of course we will add in any relevant demonstrations of spin technique or fiber prep as well. We will also be hosting pop up class sessions! We will be sure to give enough notice for people to be able to join us and will vary the times to allow people in all the different time zones to have the opportunity to chat about the course with us too.
We have also revised how we will be providing personal feedback on all the yarns sent in from each module and we think you are going to really enjoy the new and exciting format we have chosen for this! When you send us in your yarn photos we will be recording our responses and feedback in video format, its a chance for us to be a bit more personal than email and also to offer you visual support such as sharing examples and showing a technique. We are pretty excited about this and hope its going to be a great addition to the way we can support participants in this course!
With enrolments we will again be supplying the special edition Majacraft circular loom as one of our options, and all graduating students will receive their very own Majacraft Journey to the Golden Fleece Badge with the class logo and their Certificate of Completion.
Please head on over to our Course page and learn more about this unique Fiber Creativity course! You can read the testimonials, follow the link to the student galleries, and find out more about the course content. We would love to have you join us on this exciting new edition of our most beloved spin course 🙂
