2:00 PM - Intro to Hand Spinning @ Stephens      


Location:  33 W. Beauregard
Contact:  Casey Dees   325-655-7321   John.dees@co.tom-green.tx.us
Description:  

Have you ever wondered where yarn comes from?  Have you seen a spinning wheel in action and thought, “I’d like to try that!”  Join us to watch, learn, and have a hands-on opportunity to create a short length of yarn with Serendipity Spinners in STEAM Central!

Introduction to Hand Spinning.

Spinning plant and animal fiber into yarn is an ancient craft that has provided people with clothing, art and protection for centuries.  Remember Snow White who pricked her finger on a spindle or Rumpelstilskin who spun straw into gold for the would-be princess? 

Production of thread and yarn was a major cottage industry for European ladies and a necessity for American pioneers.

Today, hand spinning is an art, craft, or hobby for many who enjoy creating items from sheep wool, Angora goat fiber, cotton, alpaca, silk and many other fibers.

Learn about the process of turning raw fleece into a lovely yarn from a local hand spinner.   This introductory class will explain and demonstrate the process from shearing to skeining with examples and demonstrate the tools involved. Participants will have a short hands-on opportunity to create a sample and may schedule addition sessions with experienced spinners.
