Beginning Spinning with Sara
Dates: September 23 - September 23
Cost per ticket: $150.00
Our 1 day beginning class covers all the basics to get you started. Learn about different types of wools and their uses for different styles of yarn, the process of washing raw wool and even how to add color. Students will then be introduced to different fiber preparations including how to prepare worsted and woolen yarns using wool combs, drum carders and hand carders. After you have spun a sufficient amount of singles yarn, you learn how to ply them together to make suitable yarns for knitting or weaving. Students can use our studio wheels, but are encouraged to bring their own wheel if they already have one. We can also pair you with a wheel that best suits you that you may want to buy! We’re a authorized dealer for Ashford, Kromski, Lendrum, Louet and Schacht.
All materials included with tuition.
All classes run 9am - 5pm unless otherwise indicated in the description above.
For class dates that are full, please feel free to call us here at the studio and have your name place on the wait list.
