Want to try spinning but not ready to invest in a wheel? Drop spindling is an inexpensive way to spin, and a great way to try out a new craft without breaking the bank.
Even if you’ve been spinning on a wheel for years, using a spindle can improve your spinning skills and is extremely portable!
In this two-hour course, we’ll cover all the basics of spinning on a drop spindle including drafting fiber, working with twist, winding on to form a cop, plying on a spindle and troubleshooting common spindle problems.
Students will take home their own wood top-whorl drop spindle, fiber to continue practicing at home and ideas of how to use their handmade yarn!
Class will be held on Sunday, February 5, 2023 from 1 – 3 pm.
