Thursday All Day
Spinning wheels are marvelous machines! In this workshop, we will cover how spinning wheels work. There will be spinning exercises to remove the mystery from drive mechanisms, drive ratios, drafting, twist, take-up tension, and wheel maintenance. Along the way, participants will be introduced to concepts of mechanics (such as force, torque, angular momentum, friction) in a non-mathematical way.
Advanced beginning to intermediate spinning; able to spin singles that don’t fall apart, and some experience with plying.
$20, includes samples for examination, fibers for spinning, notebook with handouts, sundry supplies.
