WHEEL SPINNINGLearn how to spin yarn on your spinning wheel (or our shop wheel if you don't have your own!).
SCHEDULE:4/5 | 6:30PM-9PM
Learn about your spinning wheel (or our shop wheel if you don't have your own!), its parts, and their functions. During this workshop, you will learn how to spin your own yarn, as well as how to care for and use your wheel. Students do not need to have a wheel to participate - this is a great way to start to explore if spinning yarn on a wheel is right for you.
Skills + Materials
This is a beginner workshop and no previous experience is needed to participate. If you do have a spinning wheel or access to one, you can use this class to (re)orient yourself. Students without a spinning wheel will have a chance to try our shop wheel. Workshop supplies are included in the fee - you will have plenty of fiber to play with in class and take home!
Cancellation + Make-up Policy
We absolutely understand that things come up and you may need to cancel your registration. We've done our best to create a cancellation policy that honors how fickle life can be alongside our financial commitment to our staff and teaching artists. If you need to cancel your registration we are happy to offer a 50% store credit refund for cancellations made two weeks in advance of your workshop date. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds for cancellations made less than two weeks in advance. We are also unable to offer make-ups or exchanges for missed workshops.
We're looking forward to sharing space with you! If you haven't had a chance to read our Community Commitment, pop over to the website and read about how we agree to share space. Feel free to reach out to the shop if you have any questions along the way - we're excited to welcome you wherever you may be on the learning curve.
