Abby teaching handspinning

At last, it’s available digitally! The spinning fundamentals program I developed for Stringtopia Fiber Arts Studio is aimed at taking you from your first interest in making your own yarn by hand all the way up to being a comfortable intermediate spinner in only 4 months including your practice time.

SPINNING I meets weekly for 4 sessions, giving you time to practice in between those sessions.

Each session is 2 hours total and takes place live on Zoom, with a recording available after the session for you to review while you practice. You’ll also have access to a Discord chat channel where you can discuss with your fellow students, and where I’ll check in daily to answer questions throughout the session.

To begin the hands-on exercises, you will need a stick or a pencil, and some spinnable fiber, ideally wool, although you can work with any fiber you are able to find. You can also attend this class without doing it hands-on at the outset, and save your access to the class sessions to do at your leisure.

Description

At last, it’s available digitally! The spinning fundamentals program I developed for Stringtopia Fiber Arts Studio is aimed at taking you from your first interest in making your own yarn by hand all the way up to being a comfortable intermediate spinner in only 4 months including your practice time.

SPINNING I meets weekly for 4 sessions, giving you time to practice in between those sessions. Limited class spaces are available so don’t delay!

Each session is 2 hours total and takes place live on Zoom, with a recording available after the session for you to review while you practice, and ongoing access after the course completes. You’ll also have access to a Discord chat channel where you can discuss with your fellow students, and where I’ll check in daily to answer questions throughout the session.

To begin the hands-on exercises, you will need a stick or a pencil, and some spinnable fiber, ideally wool, although you can work with any fiber you are able to find. You can also attend this class without doing it hands-on at the outset, and save your access to the class sessions to do at your leisure.

You will learn:

  • The first fundamentals of making yarn by managing unspun fiber and twist using your hands, a stick, and a simple spindle you’ll shop for and select with guidance during the month-long session;
  • how to make a skein using only your hands or things you have around the house;
  • how to wash your skein, measure it, store it, and select a potential use;
  • how to troubleshoot common problems;
  • basic terminology;
  • basic definitions of fiber preparation;
  • basic fiber information (what are wool, cotton, silk, etc)

    Upon completion, I’ll send you a printable certificate of completion and you’ll unlock access to Spinning II.

Completing Spinning I, II, III, and IV unlocks access to seminars and classes for which that foundational framework is a prerequisite, including certification in the Franquemont Method of teaching the ancient technology of making yarn by hand.
