03 Mar Spinning Wheel Wisdom
In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of how to spin wool into yarn using spinning wheels. Each person will have their own wheel to work on for the duration of the class. Making thread by hand has been an essential skill throughout human history, though it has been widely lost with the times. We all have spinners in our bloodlines…remembering this ancient art connects us to the ones who came before, and those to come. Spinning natural fibers roots us to the Earth, our plant and animal kin, and to the cyclical nature of this life. It is a rich practice, filled with so much beauty and wisdom to behold. Watching fiber transform to yarn upon your fingertips is pure magic, and going on to then craft with this yarn is deeply fulfilling! Participants will leave this class with their freshly hand spun yarn, and all of the skills that they need to carry this craft home.
Annyea Healy will be teaching Spinning Wheel Wisdom.
