Practice new skills while meeting up with spinners of all ages and abilities in our weekly handspinning class. This class begins with a new demonstration each week followed by ample time to practice, ask questions, and observe handspinning techniques. Demonstrations cover the range of skills needed to progress from non-spinner to intentional fiber artist including fluent spinning and plying as well as sampling a range of natural fibers, spinning for gauge, playing with color and texture, basic roving prep, and more. Bring your own wheel, or pre-register to borrow one of ours. Your class fee includes all tools and materials.
