Skill Level: Beginner
Learn to make your own, unique handspun yarn on a spinning wheel! We’ll play with several types of prepared wool while we discuss wheel maintenance, drafting, treadling, plying and finishing techniques to make a balanced yarn. As time permits, we’ll touch on various types of fiber preparation and non-wool fibers. No previous experience required. Warning: spinning can be addictive! Materials
The fee covers all fiber and handouts, as well as in-class use of ball winder, niddy-noddy and lazy kate. Bring a treadle-driven wheel in good working condition, with at least two bobbins. For an additional $10, students may borrow a spinning wheel and bobbins for use in class. Please let us know if you need to borrow a loaner wheel.
