Beginning spinning will help the student become acquainted with the spinning wheel, learning the terms of the parts of the wheel, and to create beautiful, designer yarn. (The first yarns are always unique) The student will become comfortable treadling the wheel, learn to draft the fiber, spin, and then ply the single-ply string into 2-ply yarn. Spinning unique colors provide a sense of pride and wonder in your work. The soft, tactile action of creating your own product, which will be incorporated into a work of art, provides a sense of accomplishment. The action of spinning and relaxing into the moment is a step back from our busy and sometimes crazy world.
If you have your own spinning wheel, please bring it to class.
Wheels can also be rented for use at the class.
