Are you interested in creating your own yarn and wanting to learn how to spin? This is the perfect opportunity to learn from a local textile expert with over 15 years of experience, Heather Lawrence. Heather and class participants will discuss the basic types of spindles for hand spinning and the basics of wool and how fibers are prepared.
Students will learn how to draft fiber and spin it into a single yarn and will discuss and explore ways to ply your newly created single and how to finish and set the yarn.
Preregistration is required for this class by Wednesday, January 25th. The class costs $45 for WHC members and $50 for non-members. Visit willametteheritage.org/
