SOLD OUT Friday March 21st - What your Grandmother Would have Taught you
In the modern world we gather our spinning knowledge from books and magazines, youtube and DVDs, here and there. We are very lucky to have so many sources but at the same time that kind of learning often leaves holes in our knowledge base. In this full day class, we'll talk about S/Z directionality of combed top, woolen/worsted, long draw/short draw, joins, singles/plies, yarn energy, measuring your yarn, finishing your yarn etc. This class will help fill in the gaps and make you a stronger spinner all around.
SOLD OUT Saturday March 22nd - The Plies Have It
Plying is just as important as spinning and can make or break a yarn. This full day class will cover everything from singles to cables, 2-ply to spiral-ply, off-tension-ply to crepe ply, 3-ply to chain-ply. We'll talk about when it's okay not to ply, why plying matters, what considerations need to be taken in spinning the singles for different types of plying, what kind of strength different plying techniques add (or subtract). By the end of the class, you won't know it all, but you'll be much closer
SOLD OUT Sunday March 23rd - Rhythmic Thick & Thin Coils
Spinning thick-and-thin yarns can be difficult even for experienced spinners, but nobody ever fails to get it in this class! You'll use short fibers, a wrist twist, and knowledge of staple length to create sturdy, regular slubs and then you'll use that yarn to make the most popular (and if you're new to it, mysterious) textured yarn technique around--coils. These coils are surprising, soft, squishy, balanced and anchored! In this class you'll not only learn a fun and popular spinning technique, but you'll deepen your understanding of yarn construction and improve your fiber and hand control.
If the classes you are interested in are sold out, feel free to email Steph to be added to the waiting list.
