Spinning on a Wheel

Introduction to Spinning on a Wheel.
4  classes Mondays from 6:30-8:30pm
from April 3rd to the 24th.

Learn to use a spinning wheel, learn about yarns and how to make your own handspun usable yarns. We will explore and understand:
  • About the wheel – the parts, types of wheels
  • How yarns are made – single, 2 ply…and beyond
  • Drafting, speed and controlling twist
  • Types of fibre, fibre prep, Woolen vs. Worsted (not knitting)
  • Playing with fibre
  • What to do with your first handspun??? – Save it! Use it! It’s one of a kind….It’s beautiful!
Your hand spun yarn can be successfully used in knitting, crocheting, weaving, tapestry, rug hooking and other needle or fibre arts.

Note: Home practice is involved. You will be able to bring the wheel home with you after each class. A credit card number is required for deposit before the first class.
