Learn to Spin Yarn on the Drop Spindle
Instructor: Lesley Fowler. Meets on: Saturday March 10th, 2018, 10:00am - 4:00pm.
Spend the day learning how to spin yarn on the drop spindle! This introductory class will spend the first hour teaching you the basics of how to use the drop spindle... it's really that easy. Then spend the rest of the day learning how to spin the yarn you want. You will draft single and two ply yarn using both plant and animal fibers. Learn how these different fibers behave differently as they are spun and made into fabric. Control color in your spinning during carding, drafting, and plying. You will "finish" the small skeins that are made during the class.
*Please note: Class fee is $70.00 with a materials fee of $25.00 which includes a Maine Made spindle and sample fiber pack.
