Half day class, offered twice
Tuesday, April 19th – 2-5pm
Friday, April 22nd – 9am-noon
Have you ever wondered what spinning off the point means? Or do you just want to get better at it? This class is for you. We will be learning to spin off the point of a takli support spindle (don’t worry if you don’t have one, I’ll bring enough for everyone). Not only is this a great skill to have but it also will help you master the long draw technique. We’ll focus on controling the thickness and strength of the yarn you want to produce. Students are encouraged to bring in any support spindle you’d like to get better at.
Don’t miss the class that follows this one about spinning off the point of great wheels and charkhas (friday 2-5pm)
Materials fee: $10
Level: Beginner & Above – Must know how to spin but can be new to supported spindle spinning.
