An Introduction to Hand Spindles – 

Hand spindles were the earliest and most simple tools used to spin fiber into yarn.  Students will explore the techniques of spinning and plying on the grasped spindle, supported spindle and the suspended spindle, also known as a drop spindle.  Students of any level are welcome, no spinning experience necessary!

Melissa will provide spindles, but students may bring their own as well.
