Learn to spin your own yarn on a spinning wheel! This is an absolute beginner class.
Day 1: You will start the lesson by learning the parts of the wheel, their function and the art of treadling. Then begin the joy of spinning wool into yarn, using the drafting and sliding method with your hands while still treadling with your feet.
Day 2: On the final day you will have the art of spinning single ply yarn completed and you may begin the creative task of spinning two-ply yarn!
