Lecture Series- Plan to Spin- Project Focused Spinning
Dates: July 25 - July 25
Cost per ticket: $45.00
Let’s be honest with ourselves, sometimes we get a little carried away when a pretty thing is displayed in front of us. Acting on impulse with the notion, “I’ll find something to do with you later” we purchase and later realized that there are roadblocks in front of us. This 2-hour lecture is designed to change a spinner’s perspective about how we make yarn and purchase materials. We will discuss how to plan a spinning project with the final piece in mind to guide the decision-making process. From choosing a pattern and determining how much yardage one needs to complete the project to choosing the most appropriate fibers. We will discuss tips and tricks to create consistency in your thread from one bobbin to the next for larger projects, color usage and any unknowns you may not think to consider. If you have a project already in mind, please feel free to share during our Q&A time as many of the participants can learn much living vicariously through your planning process.
This is a 2 hour online lecture starting at 6:00PM.
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.
