924 Spinning 101: Beginning Spinning (Two day Weekend)

, ,

Why spin your own yarn? 1) You can design your finished project starting from the very beginning, with your yarn design; 2) You can create a unique yarn that can’t be found anywhere else; 3) You can create the yarn you have in mind for your project, but can’t find; 4) It’s fun, relaxing (once you know how), and cool! This two day class will start with a discussion of different types of fiber preparations and fiber selection, then we’ll learn how to draft fibers, spin on a hand spindle and a spinning wheel, ply and finish our yarn, and talk about how to store it. Students who bring their own spinning wheels should make sure they’re in good working order prior to class. Beginners are welcome. Class limited to 6 so everyone can get hands-on instruction. 2 days
