WalkingWoolStudio of Rockland offers free weekly public demos on the art of hand-spinning wool into yarn this summer. The Tuesday weekly event, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., takes place at the recently re-opened Michael Good Gallery Annex, 325 Commercial St./Route 1. The educational opportunity, geared toward school-age children through adults, runs through Labor Day weekend.

Educational events have always been part of the mission of Michael Good Gallery, said Avi Good, Michael Good Gallery manager.

“Michael Good frequently gives workshops, including two each year in his own studio in Rockport, so it seemed natural to encourage WalkingWoolStudio to provide on-site learning opportunities, as well,” she said.

Lori Schafer, artist and founder, WalkingWoolStudio, said that young people and adults of all ages seem to marvel at the process involved in anything handmade. Now, Midcoast local and visiting public can stop by any Tuesday, see how yarn is made and meet the artist, too.

“This is a wonderful chance for our studio to show the public what our passion is all about,” she said.
