Our hand spinning classes are taught by Janet Day. Janet has been spinning since 2001 and teaches both here in Australia and internationally. Spinning is her passion and she just loves to introduce it to as many people as possible.
The Woolarium classroom offers a light filled space and classes are kept small (maximum of 6) to provide students with individual attention. All fibre (locally sourced where possible) and equipment are provided for the classes, either as part of the class fee as in drop spindling, or on loan for the duration of the class as with the hand spinning classes.
Janet knows that learning a new skill can be challenging so she makes sure that both the fibres and equipment are of a high standard so that students can relax and feel supported.
This is the perfect opportunity for you to be come the creator of your own truly individual yarns!
The perfect follow on from a beginners class or for the student who's been spinning for a while and just wants to know more about spinning different thicknesses of yarns.
Spin on provides the knowledge and know how on spinning what knitters describe as 4, 8 and 10 ply yarns. What adjustments do you make to your wheel or you, to get the yarn you want for that favourite pattern? All fibre and the loan of a spinning wheel is offered for this class.
