Have you ever wondered how yarn is made? Twist the fibers and you will make yarn. Guaranteed!  

Here is your chance.  Learn the basics of a spinning wheel, (Double Treadle Lendrum Spinning Wheels will be provided for you in class),  Learn how to draft the fibers and allow the twisted fibers to slide through your fingers onto the spool. Learn how to change spools, spin more fiber onto a second spool, and then ply the two singles together. You will make yarn right before your eyes.

Experience: none
