A beginners workshop on using a spinning wheel to turn fiber into yarn with local instructor and fiber artist Betsey Leslie. Spinning is relaxing and rewarding! If you are a knitter or weaver there is nothing better than creating the exact yarn for your project. It is its own form of unique rhythm and motion using your eyes, hands, and feet to create that twisted thread of fiber that becomes yarn.

Get in the zone and become a spinner. It takes practice to master but like riding a bike, once you “get it” there’s no looking back.  If you have your own wheel that can be transported- please bring it along, it’s best to learn on your own wheel but there will be different styles of modern wheels to borrow and learn on.

Bring your own prepped fiber or use Betsey’s!

Consider spending the full day at Shaker Village and prep your own wool in the morning Fiber Preparation workshop!

Class size: 12
