Class Information:
Spinning is the basis of all yarn construction. In this class students will learn the basics of spinning yarn on a spinning wheel using sheep's wool. During this one day class students will learn the parts of a spinning wheel, how to draft fiber, how to add twist, and, if time allows, how to ply. Students will also be introduced to fiber preparation using simple hand tools. If students have a spinning wheel or spindle they want to use they are encouraged to bring that to the class. They should also bring any fiber or equipment they have questions about.

Class sizes are limited. Call Museum office (760) 941-1791 with any question.
