Beginning Yarn Spinning

March 18 - 22, 2013

Spinning Yarn - from basic to fantastic. In this 5-day class you'll learn to go from fiber to finished yarn and make some art yarns, too. Taught by Ozark Fiber Guild president and expert spinner Glenda Hershberger

Do you have a spinning wheel you would love to learn how to use? Well, bring it to the Ozark Folk Center for this Folk School class and come out Spinning!

In this class you'll start with the basic, but, once you have treadling and drafting down you can move on at your own pace.

Are you ready to go beyond the basics of spinning?
Are you ready to spin some cotton?
Or maybe learn to spinning silk?

Wheels will be available for those who do not have their own.
