Spinning

Learn 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 January 9, 2018 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm and continues every Tuesday evening for 8 weeks.

Instructor: Nancy Squire

Class fee $105, plus $30 for materials (fiber & dyes).  Register online and mail a check or bring payment to the first class.

The location for all classes is the Fiber Arts Center of Wichita at 751 George Washington Boulevard.
