DROP SPINDLE SPINNING
1 Session $40

TASTE OF SPINNING

Maggie Casey, instructor
If you have always wanted to spin, have taught yourself a little, or haven’t spun for a while, this workshop will be just what you need to gain confidence and skill. We will start with a beautiful fleece, learn to card, spin, ply and set the twist. Then we will spin woolen and worsted yarns, some commercially prepared fibers and discuss wheel maintenance.
ALL EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED. PLEASE WEAR OLD CLOTHES.

BEGINNING SPINNING ON A WHEEL

Begins Thursday, January 21, 7-9:30pm
Dye day-Saturday, February 27, 10-3pm

Spider Woman taught the Navajo women to spin with a spindle made of lightning and turquoise. While we can't provide that kind of equipment, we can continue the tradition. Wool, greasy, clean and commercially processed is our fiber. The last class is an all day natural dye workshop. Women who are pregnant should take the dye class at a later time when they are not pregnant. ALL EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED.
PLEASE WEAR OLD CLOTHES.

Now that you know what the knobs on your spinning wheel are for, is it time for another class? Spinning 2 will include such varied topics as t.p.i. (twists per inch), use of wool combs, Navajo plying and more. We will cover different techniques to give you more control over the size and twist of the yarn you spin.

Spinning novelty yarns is a wonderful way to have a lot of fun. Whether this is an embellishment or Art just for art’s sake, spinning crazy yarns is a good way to just break free. Spend the day spinning the unusual (beads, feathers, paper, and thrums).

SENSUOUS SILK SPINNING

SHOW THAT SKEIN!!
