Description
Spindles come in many different sizes and weights depending on the thickness of the yarn one desires to spin. This is an introductory class for those who wish to learn the art of spinning yarn from prepared fiber. Students will be given an overview of various fibers, the best methods for spinning them into usable yarns, and instructions on finishing methods. Each student will be given a drop-spindle and fiber of their own to work with, and take home and play with later.
