Drop Spindle 101 – Beginner

Sat, Mar 17, 10:00a-12:00p, $18

This is the class to take if you are wondering if spinning is for you and you have a desire to learn to spin yarn. This class will teach you the basics of drop spinning yarn. You should come to class with a top whorl drop spindle (or you can purchase one at the time of class), and you can purchase materials (roving) at the time of class. You will learn pre-drafting techniques to prepare fiber for spinning, proper hand placement for controlling twist during spinning, how to recognize the “drafting zone”, park and draft method for beginning spinning, how to even out twist as you spin, and drop spindle anatomy and terminology.
