Spinning Softly Sunday 9 AM
Instructor: Karen Kinyon
Sunday, 9:00 AM, 6 Hours (One-hour break for lunch)
Class Fee: $85
Class Capacity: 8
Many times beginning spinners are so busy learning about controlling the spinning wheel that they make yarn that is very over-spun and feels harsh. In this class, we will focus on techniques to make very soft, lofty yarns that still have strength and integrity. We will spin carded or combed wool and alpaca to showcase these techniques.
Materials needed: Students need to bring a 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 will be available if you don't have one. Please let us know when you sign up if you need equipment.
