Beginning Art Yarn Spinning "Tween" Spinning!
"Tween" spinning class
Spinning 2: Beginning Art Yarn Spinning-with Pam Blasko of Dream Come True Farm, Oxford, CT. Sunday, March 3, 2013, 2-5 PM. $80.00 (includes all instruction and fiber). Max=5 students. $20.00 deposit holds your space at Madison Wool Yarn Shop in Madison CT
This class is meant to fill the gap between Beginning Spinning and Camp Pluckyfluff! Many students want to learn how to make ‘ art yarn’ ( textured, funky style yarns) right out of the gate. A solid foundation in learning how to spin a basic single and two ply yarn is important. As Pluckyfluff ( Lexi Boeger) says ” you have to learn the rules before you can break them”. These funky yarns are not “bad spinning” as some traditional spinners might think and tell you. They require a technical skill that can be learned and takes practice to execute.
Pam Blasko of Dream Come True Farm in Oxford , CT is here to help! Known for her fun and funky yarns sold here and at her farm and Etsy shops, she is here to teach you some tips and tricks to help you make the yarns of your dreams! In this 3 hour intensive, you will learn:
How to spin a thick and thin yarn
How to spin from a batt ( and how to card a textured art batt)
All fiber provided; bring anything you would like of your own fiber / add ins. Wheels available for use or bring your own. You will come away from this class with new techniques to try at home and some fun yarns!

My goal for this class is to take the beginner or more traditional spinner to the next level. This will enable you to take a class without fear with any of the accomplished spinners you may have the opportunity to spin with. This is a no pressure class, fun and relaxing.
And where better then in the "back room" at Madison Wool.
