Spinning and equipment
Informal tutoring for spinning is available at most general activity days.
Formal Spinning lessons are also available by arrangement if none have been scheduled.
“Spinning Basics” lessons are available at a cost of $35 at Speers Point at times to fit in with the beginner/s. This will cover use of wheels and maintenance, spinning techniques for “singles” and plying for a completed yarn.
