Beginning Drop Spindle Class
Jun 19, 2021
Learn how to spin using the most basic method of spinning: the drop spindle. Spinners have been transforming fiber into yarn using drop spindles for 10,000 years or more, long before spinning wheels were developed. Prior to the invention of the spinning wheel, spindles were used for spinning the thread used for weaving into all fabrics including sails, clothing, linens and more. Drop spindles can be as primitive as a stone with a stick going through it, to intricately crafted pieces of art. We will provide you a spindle with which you will learn to spin, which will be available for purchase along with our many other styles of drop spindles.
