Introduction to Spinning
Spinning classes offered periodically. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to determine dates. Students should have a wheel (either their own or borrowe. Note to Guild members – the Guild has spinning wheels that may be borrowed). Spinning fibre (roving) can be purchased in small amounts from the instructor or students may bring their own. They should discuss with the instructor the type of fibre they are bringing as not all are appropriate for beginning spinners. There will be discussion about types of wheels, ergonomics, fibre preparation. Skills taught will include drafting, spinning short draw, and plying. Other topics may be discussed as brought up by students in the class. Maximum four students per class. Classes are four hours (usually a little more) in two separate sessions giving students time to do ‘homework’ after the first session and before the second session. Cost: $60
