YARN: Begin to Spin!

YARN: Begin to Spin!

Program Description

Curious about making yarn but not sure about a spinning wheel? Believe it or not, the spinning wheel is still a NEW technology, and the traditional method is just as fun. This class is perfect for anyone interested in where clothing comes from, or curious about the possibilities of funky fiber art. In this beginning spinner's workshop, we'll learn basic hand-spinning techniques on a supported spindle. We'll discuss fiber types, learn to card our own wool, and even blend some colors. All materials provided, including your very own spindle, locally grown wool, and more. 

This class requires moderate manual dexterity, such as thumb and index finger contact.
