This two-part course teaches students the technique required for using the drop spindle.The knowledge of hand spinning translate into drafting technique when using a spinning wheel and completion of this level is a pre-requisite for "Spin Me a Yarn" workshops. During the first session of this workshop students receive their own drop spindle and fiber to practice with at home before the second class. Completion of this class is a pre-requisite to "Spin Me a Yarn" Intermediate Spinning.
