If you would like to learn how to create unique yarn for your knitting or fiber projects, this class is for you. This workshop will teach: why wool spins into yarn, how to prepare wool for spinning, how to spin on a drop spindle and a spinning wheel.  

  1. Part 1: will teach the basics of fiber preparation, drafting and spinning on a drop spindle. 
  2. Part 2: will teach spinning on a spinning wheel, plying and finishing your skein. Equipment will be provided and studio time is included in the fee. (Studio time=time to spin on wheels at Madison Wool; wheels can only be used at the shop).

This class has been very popular, with many of our students confidently taking classes afterwards with our national/international visiting spinning teachers, and even winning prizes at local fiber festivals for their handspun yarns!  We are proud and happy to be able to teach them a solid foundation in the basics of spinning.

Maximum of 5 students.
