JF32 Exploring Simple Spinning

with Bonnie Butler

You don’t need a wheel to spin! All over the world, in different places and at different times, prehistoric people discovered how to spin by experimenting with techniques and tools to twist raw fibers. In this workshop we’ll play with wool, twisting and spinning with our hands, on our knees, and on simple spindles similar to those used by prehistoric spinners. Please feel free to bring your own spindle, or wool, if you have them. If not, we’ll have some for you to play with. Age 5+.
