I’ll be teaching three classes this month and next at Wabi-Sabi:
October 23 – Drop Spindle 101 Learn the basics of spinning yarn on a drop spindle, including plying. No experience needed, all materials included.
October 30 – Fibre Prep How to choose, clean, and prepare a raw fleece for spinning. Learn how to use handcards, combs, and other fibre prep tools.
November 27 – Intermediate Spinning For those who can spin a continuous yarn and want to expand their skill set. We’ll use different drafting and plying techniques on a variety of fibres to create yarns with specific characteristics. Open to wheel- and spindle-spinners.
For those of you further east, I’m also in the process of scheduling an Intermediate Spinning class at Tric-o-Knit in Casselman, ON. Classes at Ariadne Knits in Montreal will start up again in the new year!
