Have you ever struggled to find the right colours or weights of yarn for 'that' project or have you always wanted to create your own unique yarns? Well this class will teach you how to spin your own yarn using a drop spindle! This beginners class with spinning aficionado Christopher Kale is a great introduction to the art of drop-spinning. You'll learn how to make your own yarn with just a little guidance. This class is meant for the complete beginner, or as a refresher course.
DESIGNER: Christopher Kale
Very very busy singer and teacher who tries to find the time to indulge in his many hobbies. Years ago, I discovered the relaxing fun of (hand) spinning. When the yarn started piling up, rediscovered the (sometimes) relaxing fun of knitting, which I learned as a child. Now the two are competing for the very little time I have when I am not running from one job to another in airplanes (where I dare to knit), trains (where I try to knit) and bicycles (where I can’t knit).
Both my knitting and spinning designs are focused on the play of rich colors and textures.
