In this 2-session class, you’ll learn to produce your own yarn on a spinning wheel. You’ll learn the basics of handspinning plus how to choose and prepare fiber for spinning, how to design your own yarns for different projects, how to take care of a spinning wheel, and ideas for using your handspun yarn. In session 1, you’ll learn the mechanics of spinning different fibers and how to work with your spinning wheel, then you’ll go home and practice. In session 2, we’ll cover more about yarn design, and you’ll work with the instructor to troubleshoot your own spinning technique as needed and answer any questions you have.
