Handspun Wire Core Workshop With Emily Wohlscheid

October 16 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

$56

This exploratory, all levels workshop takes students from learning the basics of spinning around a fine wire core to utilizing the same techniques to experiment with core materials that have similar properties. In addition to spooled jewelry wire, students will have the opportunity to spin around battery operated LED strands and fabric covered floral wire. An emphasis will be placed on how to adjust your wheel for these unusual yarns and how to prepare various core materials for spinning. Valuable tips and tricks to avoid over twisting and wire breakage will be covered for all core materials with suggestions for how to use their finished “yarns.”

  • $38 plus $18 material fee
