Join us for Learn to Spin Using a Spinning Wheel with Gina Taylor.
Always wanted to learn how to spin? You can bring that wheel you acquired but are unsure how to use, or try one of Gina’s several different wheels. You will learn the basics of wheel spinning, about the parts of the wheel and how they function, how to treadle and adjust tension, how to transfer yarn from the bobbin to a niddy-noddy, and how to set finished yarn. You will also learn about the properties of different fibers, how to prep them for easy spinning, and how to make yarn using different finishing techniques.
If you have your own wheel, please bring it on the first day of class, and e-mail or text a picture of your wheel to Gina before class. Let Gina know if you will need to use one of her wheels. This class is designed for beginning to intermediate spinners.
Students will be able to take home the yarn they produce.
There will be a $10 supply fee for a variety of spinning fibers to try, payable to the instructor on the first day of class.
What to bring:
- $10 supply fee
- Your spinning wheel
