Intermediate Spinning

Description:

            This workshop focuses on how to get out of your go-to spinning rut once you’ve mastered spinning and plying on your wheel. Now that you’ve figured out how to spin, you might want to fine tune your spinning and plying to suit specific projects or for your yarns to have certain qualities and we’ll discuss how to fine tune the yarns you make.

You will leave knowing how to:

  • Spin yarns other than your go-to yarn (thicker and thinner weight yarns)
  • Approach spinning different wool fiber preparations
  • Use different drafting techniques
  • How to analyze yarn, assessing their qualities and how that translates to how they function in an end product

What you need to know before taking the class:

How to spin a yarn on your wheel and how to ply from 2 bobbins on your wheel.

Length of class:

1/2 day up to a full day workshop
