Instructor: Mary Goss
Learn to spin on a spinning wheel. In this class you will learn all about the various parts of a spinning wheel, and how to prepare fibers for spinning. Each student will have an Ashford spinning wheel to learn on during the workshop. You will learn to not only create singles, but to do basic plying as well. Roving will be provided, but you’ll need to bring yourself a lunch.

I graduated from Ohio State University in 1977 with a degree in Art Education and a minor in Weaving. While attending O.S.U., I studied under the master weaver Clara Creager , who also taught me how to spin. I own four alpacas, and have sold handspun yarns in the past. I have taught spinning at the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio and demonstrated spinning at Frontier Spirit at Alley Park. The textile arts have been my hobby and passion for over 40 years. You can find me on Facebook under my name, or email me at email@example.com.
