Beginner Drop Spindle (virtual)


This is a virtual workshop that meets over Zoom. Learn to use a Drop Spindle in this super fun beginner workshop! Have you always wanted to learn how to make your own yarn but you're not quite ready to make the investment in a spinning wheel? Learn how to spin using a drop spindle. It's fun, portable, affordable, and a great stepping stone for folks interested in learning how to spin yarn on a spinning wheel. Working with a drop spindle helps you get the feel for drafting the fiber.

This is a beginner workshop and there is no previous experience needed to participate. The workshop fee does not include materials. For this workshop you will need one drop spindle of any size/type and a few ounces of fiber. If you'd like to buy your materials through Wild Hand we will gladly ship them. If you're local you can stop by the shop or select Local Pick-up at check-out. Below is a list of workshop supply ideas from our shop.
