JC10 Spinning Beehives, Cocoons and Variations

with Sarah Anderson

In this 3 hour class you will not only learn to add fun elements like Beehives and Cocoons on a singles yarn, you will also learn techniques for making more consistent and fatter singles. Even if you don’t want to use many of these yarns in your projects, the process of making them will help you to develop better hand-eye coordination and improve your control in all of your spinning. Skill Level: Students should be able to spin a continuous yarn and be comfortable with their equipment. Students should bring: Spinning wheel in working order, lazy kate and 2 bobbins. You will want large whorls for slow spinning.

About the instructor: An avid fiber enthusiast since childhood, Sarah Anderson is the author of “The Spinner’s Book of Yarn Designs”. Sarah’s enthusiasm for spinning techniques and constructions has driven her to create an extensive library of different yarn constructions that she loves to share with other spinners. She lives, spins, knits and weaves in the Pacific Northwest with her husband in a house full of wheels and wool.
