Half day class, offered once
Tuesday, April 19th – 2-5pm
Espinners are quickly becoming the go to choice as travel wheels. However, how do they differ from treadle wheels? What about ratios? What about consistency? Well, in this class we are going to try to answer these questions.We will look at just what makes an espinner different to a treadle wheel and what this means for practical spinning. We will discuss RPM and how this relates/differs to ratios. We will then focus on getting you acquainted with your espinner. What are the quirks yours has? How can you adjust to get the yarn you want? Then we will look into different spinning techniques such as Longdraw and fine spinning on your espinner and try to turn you from an espinner novice to an espinner pro!
