The Spinner's Toolkit: Techniques and Tools for Exceptional Fiber

About The Spinner's Toolkit: Techniques and Tools for Exceptional Fiber

Are you ready to take your spinning skills to the next level? Join fiber artist and Master Spinner Alanna Wilcox for a comprehensive online demonstration that will cover the essential tools and techniques for crafting exceptional fiber and yarn.

In this three-hour demonstration, you will see how to use hand carders and wool combs to prepare fiber, how to use a niddy noddy to measure yarn, and discover the different types of fiber preparations that different tools can create.

You will also learn valuable hacks to make spinning as well as record keeping easier, and discover ways to use non-traditional tools like spreadsheets that you may not have considered before.

This class is perfect for spinners of all levels who want to improve their knowledge and enjoy getting the most out of creating their handspun yarns.

This class is limited to 25 students.
