We decided to rename this 8-week class “Spinning Exploration” because it’s SO much more than learning to spin!
Make your own yarn for knitting, crochet or weaving. Spin a variety of fibers (silk, camel, mohair, cotton, linen… as well as some exotic fibers like soy silk, casein, qiviut, cashmere, etc.).
Learn about preparing fiber for spinning (including degumming silk cocoons). We also have a dyepot at three different classes with a different type of dye process, plus instructions.
Students use class spinning wheels and carders, but may bring their own equipment to learn on.
Class starts on May 15, 2018 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm and continues every Tuesday through July 3rd.
Instructor: Nancy Squire
Class fee $135, plus $25 for materials (fiber & dyes). Register online and bring payment to the first class.
The location for all classes is the Fiber Arts Center of Wichita at 751 George Washington Boulevard.
