Roots of Fiber Arts ~ Drop Spindle
In this workshop, we will take time to remember and honor the ancient art of fiber spinning. Participants will learn how to transform local, raw wool into freshly spun yarn. With busy, humble hands, we will learn about the history of fiber spinning, sing songs, and discuss the importance of keeping this craft alive. Students will leave the class with their very own skein of hand spun yarn, and enough knowledge and hands on experience to continue spinning with a drop spindle at home.
