Have you ever been curious about spinning wool? This beginner’s spinning adventure starts with a drop (suspended) spindle. Using processed wool fibre, Christine will show you how to make a single thread and then turn that thread into a 2-ply yarn. Along the way, you’ll discover different types fibres, and learn how they all work together. Finally, you will take your freshly spun yarn off the spindle, finish it and then store it until you are ready to use it.
A beautiful Ashford Drop Spindle and all the fibres will be provided for this class. No previous experience is required.
All you need is a pen and a notepad.
3 hours class, May 20, from 10:30 to 1:30 pm. $ 75 plus taxes (including a drop spindle). Classes are being held at Carriageway Studios in Almonte.
