Spinning lessons are taught either on my handmade Louet-inspired single treadle wheel, or my Ashford Country Spinner 2.
If you have a finished project in mind to knit, crochet, or weave, feel free to bring along a pattern and we can make sure that the yarn is suitable.
Depending on your experience level, in your class we can cover the basics of spinning, setting up your wheel, spinning worsted vs woolen, spinning singles and plyed yarn, and lockspinning and tailspinning. Sometimes a certain type of yarn suits a specific way of spinning, and we can discuss this too. There are many different types of yarns dotted around my studio, so you can decide if there’s a new technique you’d like to try or if a certain type of yarn catches your eye.
