Instructor: Melissa Mills
Registration Deadline: Friday, January 10, 5:00pm
Time: Saturday Afternoons from 1pm to 4pm

Skills Taught: This class is an introduction to spinning wool with a spinning wheel. No prior experience is required. If you happen to have a wheel, bring it to class with you. Wheels will be available in class for practice.

Part I is all about wheel anatomy and practice treading, as well as working towards getting fiber on to the bobbin. Part II will be a reminder of plying and finishing, but mostly focusing on advanced spinning techniques of how to measure, record, and prepare handspun yarns for a final project. Mel will also share tips on how you can use Ravelry as a tool to find projects for your handspun yarns.
