Beginners’ Spinning Workshop

April 22 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Spend the day at the Homeplace and learn the ancient craft of spinning yarn in this 4-hour beginner’s workshop.

Traditional Fiber Artist and Homeplace Interpreter, Cindy Earls, will teach the basic techniques of spinning using a drop spindle. Then you’ll learn how to prepare wool and other fibers for spinning.

Once you have mastered the spinning technique, try your hand at spinning on a treadle and walking spinning wheel.

A drop spindle and enough Homeplace wool to practice with is included with the workshop fee, so you can keep spinning at home.

$50 Workshop Fee

Registration and full deposit required. Bring a lunch. For more information and to reserve your space, call 270.924.2020.
