About this experience

Learn to use a Drop Spindle. Have you always wanted to learn to make your own yarn but you’re not quite ready to make that investment in a spinning wheel? Learn how to spin using a drop spindle. It’s fun ... it’s portable ... and a fraction of the cost of a spinning wheel. Take the first steps and learn the basics.


All classes meet virtually via Zoom. You will be provided with a link in advance of the workshop.

This is a beginner class - no skills are required. Price includes thoughtfully sourced materials (no additional materials fees) - a drop spindle and fiber - that will be available for pick-up or delivery to you (locally via e-bike and otherwise via USPS - shipping costs are not included in class fee) in advance of the workshop. Students also get a one-time use 15% off discount card for use during and up to two weeks following the last class session.
