After the stress and anxiety of the last 2 years who isn’t ready to learn a new skill that involves absolutely nothing that needs to be charged, plugged-in or turned on?
Most of us, as knitters and crocheters, have an inherent love of yarn but maybe not the acreage to keep those sheep! Alternatively, maybe you have been knitting forever and want to take a step back and deconstruct the process?
When you want to surround yourself with wool but not necessarily knit and crochet, spinning can provide the meditative joy of working with your hands the same way our ancestors did. It’s a connection to the past that we can all use in the present. Whatever your reason for wanting to learn to spin, we’ve got you covered!
This class includes 2 sessions with 3 hours of instruction each. It includes the wonderful and compact Ashford Joy 2 Spinning Wheel with carry case. You’ll learn all about your spinning wheel as well as the joy of spinning. Roving is not included but available for sale in the shops.
We love the Ashford Joy 2 because it’s light weight, portable and has folding treadles and a built-in lazy kate and carry bag. And the best part is that you don’t need to assemble it!
We love to share our passion of all things yarn, so we hope you'll come play with us! Classes are held 2 weeks apart so you’ll have time to spin. Make sure you can attend both classes. We DO NOT offer make-ups for missed classes.
