“Beyond the Basics” Spinning Classes

Learn a variety of versatile spinning techniques – we’ll choose topics depending on the interests of the group, topics could range from core spinning to beaded yarns, to multiple ply yarns and working with color! Basic spinning ability is required, but new spinners are totally welcome!  This series of classes will introduce students to several different spinning techniques which can be used to create a great range of beautiful and functional yarns. Each of the three classes will focus on a different technique and students will have the opportunity to create samples in class and take materials home to practice further.
