Take your spinning skills up to the next level and learn to spin funky, textured yarns.

Techniques you will learn:

  • Corespinning

  • Thick and Thin

  • Coils

Equipment needed:

  • Spinning wheel.  If you have a bulky flyer bring it along, but most techniques can be done with the standard flyer.

  • 3 – 6 bobbins

  • Lazy Kate — at least one, but you might find two helpful.

  • Niddy Noddy — sample size or full size


All required materials are provided. Feel free to bring anything you would like to incorporate into your yarn – hand-painted sliver, mohair locks, beads, etc.

This is not a beginning spinning class. We assume that you’re comfortable spinning a balanced two-ply yarn from start to finish.

Morning tea will be provided. Bring your own lunch (refrigerator and microwave available).
