In this 3 session class,  we will prepare fibers for spinning.  We will be using  spinning wheels to spin alpaca fiber into yarn. We will see demonstrations on a spinning wheel as well as hands on to make your own yarn. There will be time to practice with supervision, along with homework. 

You must bring your own wheel, use a classroom wheel, or plan to purchase a new Kromski wheel.

If you want to use the class wheel you must make an appointment  to spend time in the studio for your personal independent time to practice. Appointments can be made anytime between Wednesday-Saturday  11-3. for extra personal  practice. We have 3 class wheel, the first to request use of wheels will be eligible to use. Class wheels do not leave the studio.

Should you decide to purchase a new Kromski wheel you may take advantage of a payment plan.
