SPINDLE SPINNING: THE BASICS and BEYOND

Interested in learning how to spin your own yarn? This class is designed to cover the basics of materials, how to prepare the fiber to spin, and the basics of spinning on a spindle. In the morning we will learn how to spin yarn using a basic spindle provided during class, and in the afternoon we will learn how to ply the yarn we have spun. An extensive discussion on finishing your yarn for your intended project will follow. This class is tailored to the students individual interest and aims to answer the questions that they bring. The ultimate goal of this class is to extend your knowledge of how yarn is made and learn how to spin it.
