Coils & Corespinning with Casey Ryder

Interested in creating your own art yarns?  Corespinning is the gateway to the world of art yarns!  We will cover the techniques needed to core spin as well as how to create coils. Students must be comfortable spinning on a wheel.  

Materials provided:

-1oz. carded batt for core spinning

-1oz. hand-dyed wool/silk top for coils

Please bring:

-your wheel.  A large orifice and slow whorl help a lot.  If you have a bulky bobbin and flyer, bring that along.

-50-100 yards of wool yarn for your core wound in a ball or on a cone

*You may also rent a wheel for the class for $10 

Cost is $50.
