Norman Kennedy, that enigmatic man
Black Friday brought me a video from Interweave: Norman Kennedy shows how to prepare and spin flax and cotton. Magic! His movements are so self-assured. You immediately understand he’s done this so many times that every movement is in his muscle memory, and that he’s long ago worked out the best way to do every working moment. He’s sparse, it looks like a well choreographed minimalistic performance.
OH YES, my HERO 🙂 I have taken classes from him, spinning and weaving and am lucky enough to have both his videos, thank goodness someone ‘made’ him do it 🙂 He was adverse for a while to making a video. SO glad you enjoy him.
Lucky you! I have the carding video, but not the waulking video. Maybe I should buy that one too.
