Workshop Info

Date: Thursday, October 17, 2019
Time:9:00 - 4:00
Category:Spinning
Instructor:Mary Berry
Wheel Spinning 101

Spin your own yarn! Yes you can!  In this class, you will learn to spin on a spinning wheel.  We will cover the parts of the wheel and how to set your wheel up for spinning.  You will learn how to draft the fiber before you let the twist in that makes it magically turn to yarn, and how to turn those single plies of yarn into a nice two-ply yarn.  You will leave with your own hand spun yarn!

Students must bring:  A fully functional spinning wheel (sorry, there won’t be time to troubleshoot non-working wheels), spinning wheel oil, threading hook, a Lazy Kate, and 3 bobbins.  If you have extra parts for your wheel (such as an extra drive band or tension band), you might as well bring those too. 

A limited number of wheels are available to rent from the instructor with prior arrangement.
