Learn to Spin with Janel Laidman
Have you ever wanted to learn how to make your own yarn? Spinning is one of the most ancient crafts of mankind.
In this class we'll learn the principles of spinning using a drop spindle and wool. Students will learn about twist and draft, as well as plying and grist. Once you have made yarn, you'll have a deeper appreciation of the properties of commercially available yarns, and will be able to better match yarns to projects. And you'll have a fun new skill!
