Drop Spindle Spinning
Try your hand at the truly ancient art of spinning yarn on a drop spindle.
We'll explore the history and the science behind making yarn with the modern descendent of one of the oldest tools known to humankind. Fiber preparation, how twist works, learning to draft, ply, and finish the plied yarn will be covered.
There will be plenty of in-class time to spin as well as lecture/demonstration.
Students may bring a spindle if they have one, and there will be spindles available for purchase.
Each spinner is different, so we'll have a range of sizes/types to try.
$45 plus a material fee paid to the instructor.
**Please note: we will be using wool fibers for a number of reasons. If this is an allergen, please make arrangements with the instructor for non-wool fibers, or feel free to bring your own to the first class.
