Spinning Lessons Now Forming - No Equipment Necessary

Spinning Wheel 1

Spinning wheels are expensive. This course is an introduction to hand-spinning on a wheel covering the basics in a single day, 3-hour session designed for students to discover the thrill of spinning before investing in equipment.  Sessions are held on Saturdays from 9 - 11 a.m. in Appomattox, Virginia.  

The course fee includes handouts, practice fiber, and the use of an Ashford Traditional Spinning Wheel (like the one shown) and carders.  Note taking is encouraged.  Students take home their first yarn creations at the end of the session.   

Due to the hands-on nature of this class, space is limited to three students per session.

Students will learn:

· Preparing fiber to spin
· Drafting
· Types and parts of spinning wheels
· Proper treadling and spin ratios
· And, finally, we will learn to spin on the wheel!
· If time permits, plying and setting the twist will be discussed

 

Private lessons, and lessons on an on-going basis can also be arranged.
