When: Sat., Sept. 30, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 2017
Introduction to the spinning wheel, starting with the basic techniques: Get the feel of the spinning wheel. It takes a while to get the hang of spinning, to coordinate the feet and hands to create a thread. As your skill grows, try out different wools to feel the difference they make in your spinning. During the afternoon students will enlarge their spinning skills by learning to use the woolen or worsted techniques to produce yarns for different uses.
