Have you ever wondered what spinning off the point means? Do you want to get better at it or spinning on a charkha or great wheel? This class is for you. It’s a follow up to the class taught earlier this week — Spinning off the point (takli) — but you needn’t have taken it to learn from this class.
Spinning off the point (whether with a spindle, great wheel, or charkha) is great skill to have and it also will help you master the long draw spinning. In this class we will focus on a variety of charkha wheels, learning the differences and their limitations. Several spinning wheel quills will be available to work on as well as a e-spinner. Students are encouraged to bring in any type of charkha, and wheels with quills to class.
Level: Beginner & Above – Must know how to spin but can be new to spinning off the point.
