About the Course

This is a workshop designed for the beginner hand spinner or for those who have tried to learn to spin but are still struggling.
I keep the beginner spinner workshop short in length, only 3 hours, because your hands and feet are doing new things that you are not accustomed to so you get tired. It is better to spin a little at a time and practice every day rather than trying to overdo it.
You will learn about how a spinning wheel works. How to become familiar with your spinning wheel. How to control the twist and to spin with an even tension. How to join yarn and spin a bobbin full of yarn.
I have a few different types of spinning wheels available for you to practice on, before you purchase your own wheel.
I offer 1 to 1 instruction for my workshops so that I can tailor the workshop to your needs.
