Introduction to Spinning: Fiber to Yarn!
This will be an in-person workshop held at the Jewish Community Center in La Jolla. We need advance notice of how many participants there will be so Stacy can order the kits ahead of time. Sign up soon, please!
In this class you will have the opportunity to learn the art of spinning ﬁber into yarn. With the simplest of tools and ﬁber we can make magic. Putting twist into ﬁber creates yarn. A kit for purchase will include a spindle and some ﬁber, speciﬁcally chosen for beginner spinners. We will explore the basics and experience this ancient practice.
Bring some knitting needles in sizes 6-8 in case there is time to knit your very own yarn.
A few examples of projects, made in Stacy’s own hand-spun yarn:
Spinning has a learning curve so don’t feel discouraged. It is a process and an art, and we will explore it together. The morning session will be devoted to spinning; there will be a break for lunch and the afternoon session will be devoted to knitting up what was spun in the morning.
Level of experience: open to everyone
