In this remote class, we will learn the fundamentals of spinning with a hand spindle. Students will receive a kit ahead of the class which includes a high whorl spindle, an assortment of wool, and downloadable instructions. Our classes will include online group meetings, supplemental video instruction, and one-on-one sessions with the instructor in which we will focus on the individual needs of each student. At the end of the class, students will have a grounding in the elements of spinning, including drafting fiber, controlling twist, and creating a structurally-sound handspun yarn.
Note: Registration closes two weeks prior to class so that the instructor will have time to mail out the materials.
Feel free to bring your favorite tools and whatever materials you might feel appropriate for this course.
