Spinning Wheels Go Round: Basics & More
The start of art yarn! Spun up a bit of yarn on a wheel and wondering what to do next? Then this class is for you. Spinning wheels from more than ten different makers will be provided for use (though you’re welcome to bring your own working wheel) as we focus on such skills as thick-and-thin spinning and thread plying.* Join in as Esther leads us through the fundamentals of spinning art yarn and puts us on the road to experimentation and adventure.
* Class fee includes 2 ounces of solid-color Merino to spin and threads of various kinds and colors for plying. Students may bring additional fiber from home for their use if they so desire. Such fiber should already be prepared for spinning as roving, top, rolags, or a batt. Students may also purchase more fiber from the Foldout Cat for an additional fee to be paid in class.
Students who own working wheels are welcome to bring them if they wish to do so. Please, no nonfunctioning or classic/historic wheels.
