Description
This class will go over the history of spinning and give hands-on instructions for how to spin yarn on a drop spindle. I hope you will join us on our journey into fiber! At the end of the class, the student should have a basic knowledge of spinning throughout the SCA period, basic knowledge on types of fiber and spinning tools, and should be able to spin a basic yarn on a drop spindle. The class will include a handout and wool for the student to spin with. Drop spindles will be provided for use in class and may be purchased after the class for $6 if the student wishes. Students may bring their own drop spindle if they own one. If you are interested in taking this class but are allergic to wool, please email me at jrargent42@gmail.com and let me know so that I may provide a fiber substitute for you to use.
