Description

March 2, 2024:  10 am – 2pm

This class is being jointly hosted by two woman owned farms in the Michigan area. We have a variety of fibers available, and we each bring a unique perspective to the process to broaden your learning experience.

Fiber will be provided for the class. You just need to bring your wheel. We can provide a wheel for the day if you let us know ahead of time.

 

In this class you will learn the basics of spinning yarn. Some of the key items will be:

– Mechanics of spinning wheels, the differences and how the various parts contribute to the success of spinning.

– How to adjust your wheel for success

– Beginning spinning techniques

– Hands-on practice and help

– How to ply (finish) the yarn

– Setting your yarn

 

There will be multiple teachers available to give you any guidance you might need for success. Coffee, tea and water will be available. Please bring your own lunch, and drink if desired. There will be a 10% discount available the day of the class for purchases made here. A mill tour will also be included.
