Watching someone spin on a spinning wheel or with a hand spindle is nothing short of magical. Now you can learn how to create this magic yourself. Participants will use carded or combed wool and alpaca fiber to learn the basics of Hand Spinning. We will measure fleece staples and practice drafting to prepare for spinning on a hand spindle and spinning wheel. Fee is $75.00 per person and a $15.00 material fee. Minimum of 4 or maximum of 8 students.
Materials needed: Please bring a hand spindle or working spinning wheel. (Please no wheels that need to be set up or are missing parts. We just won't have time to fix them.) Also, bring ball winder, niddy noddy, oil bottle, paper and pen. Some wheels and hand spindles will be available if you don't have one. Please let us know when you sign up if you need equipment.
If you don’t have a spinning wheel and supplies please let us know. Limited Spinning wheels are available for a $10 rental.
