Lovely and tactile, spindle spinning is a wonderful introduction to the elements of yarn making. This workshop will expose students to essential spinning terminology, the basics of carding and fiber preparation, as well as the mechanics of drafting and plying. Classes will include an overview of animal fibers typically used in yarn production and how naturally occurring fiber characteristics like softness, drape and sheen effect design choices.
