Want to learn how to use a drop spindle? Or how to spin? Our friend Anne Schwartz is teaching some classes this month at the Keystone Art Space on San Fernando Road.
In this fun two-hour class you will learn the basics of spinning yarn on a drop spindle, and will receive your own spindle and fiber to keep!
This is a great way to start spinning because you’ll learn the basics – drafting fiber, adding twist and plying yarn – in a way that can be easily controlled, and using an inexpensive tool! Even if your goal is to spin on a spining wheel, you will learn skills and principles that will also be used on your wheel!
In addition to drop spinning, Anne offers private one-on-one spinning lessons.
