Event Navigation

Instructor: Melissa Harris

10am-3pm

$85 plus $10 materials fee

Bring a brown bag lunch

Learn to spin, using one of our spinning wheels and local wool. You will learn how to spin, as well as basic wheel mechanics and an introduction to turning fiber into your own handspun yarn.

This is a continuing level class which will focus on plying singles to create a thicker, balanced yarn.
Plying gives spinners more options for using their yarns. We will also be trying different numbers and types of plies, including novelty combinations.
Prerequisites: Beginning Spinning or equivalent. You need to be able to spin a single. You do not need to have any plying experience.
Let us know if you need to borrow a spinning wheel. If you are bringing your own wheel, please be sure to practice on it and make sure that it is in working order.
Please bring: bobbins of singles, and at least one empty bobbin to ply onto. Other tools that are nice to have: niddy-noddy, lazy kate, hand cards, notebook, pencil, scissors, oil.
