Skill Level: Beginner
Do you remember all the advice that more experienced spinners shared with you when you first started spinning? And all those fabulous tips and tricks that they swore by? No? Maybe you have forgotten some of them due to information overload? Yes? Well, fear not!
We will cover those questions that surface most often for spinners, whether wheel or spindle, and will offer suggestions on ways to overcome the problems and issues in a range of spinning topics. Some of the topics covered in this workshop will include: Wheel maintenance, spindle storage, fiber characteristics, drafting, plying and finishing.
I want to be prepared with the necessary tools and supplies! Bring your questions or submit them before the workshop to TerriSpins@gmail.com.
The fee covers handouts and various supplies as needed to answer questions and resolve spinning issues.
Students should bring note taking supplies, a spinning wheel in good working order or spindles, any tools and/or fiber that are related to your specific questions (ie. handcards, nostepinne, etc.)
