It’s relaxing, it’s portable, it’s inexpensive and it spun the world’s threads for thousands of years.  It’s the Drop Spindle! Spindling is a great way to learn the mechanics of spinning, to learn how to handle fiber, and to experiment with new fibers. Spindlers have great control of drafting and the insertion of twist.  While students practice, we will talk about fiber preparation and the history and variety of spindles.  The instructor will demonstrate on a variety of spindles.  Plying techniques will be discussed and demonstrated.  No experience necessary! 

Equipment: Drop spindles and roving will be provided to use during class.
