Beginning Spinning Classes (4 sessions)

November 10, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Learn how to create your own yarn! This series of four weekly classes will introduce students to spinning yarn on a spinning wheel. The classes will cover an overview of how the spinning wheel works, preparing fiber for spinning, how to spin a continuous yarn and how to create a balanced 2-ply yarn. Students will be encouraged to practice between classes and will gain the foundational experience needed to go on to become a versatile spinner.

Class Cost: $140* ($35 per session)
Materials Cost: $4 (this will cover the cost of a selection of wool for spinning – students who have their own wool to spin can skip the materials fee)
Students Should Bring: A functional spinning wheel, 3 bobbins (minimum) – NOTE: Calypso has spinning wheels available for monthly rental– wheel rental cost is $70 for the month.
*Calypso Members receive a 10% discount on the class cost—ask about becoming a member!
