Welcome to the wonderful world and ancient craft of spindle spinning! What was once the tool used to create the fabric for the sails of Viking longships can be the beginning point of your next knitted or woven project. We will start with a top whorl drop spindle, and there will also be a demonstration on the bottom whorl, Turkish and takhli supported spindle spinning. Students may try any or all of these tools and techniques. A 4oz ball of wool is included in the class price, and spindles are available to borrow if you don't have your own.
