Workshop | Drop Spindling - January 2023

During this 3 hour workshop I will guide you through the steps of hand spinning your very own yarn. Depending on your spindling pace, you will create approximately 100g of hand spun yarn during the workshop. The Unusual Pear drop spindle and 200g of fibre are yours to take home with you to continue your practice of hand spinning. 

Overview: Techniques you will learn include fibre selection and preparation, drop spindling single ply basics, how to spin various thicknesses of yarn, removing the spun yarn from the spindle, the 2-ply technique and setting your finished yarn.

Skill Level: This workshop is most suited to people who have little knowledge of hand spinning but have experience with handling yarn in other crafts (weaving, knitting, etc). 

Date & Time: TBA January 2023

Location: In our beautiful home studio located in Lambton, Newcastle | For privacy reasons, our address is not displayed on the internet, it will be emailed to you once you have booked your seat.

What to bring: Although not essential, you may like to bring a notepad and pen plus any images you'd like to use as inspiration. 

Classes are intimate, with a maximum of 6 people per workshop, ensuring I have the availability to spend time each individual throughout the class. If you have a group of friends (4-8 people) and would like to book a private workshop, I'd love to accomodate this for you - just email me at rainie@theunusualpear.com to talk dates.

I hope to see you there,
