Spinning 101 at Historic Bath

Event Description

Is your New Year's resolution to try a new skill? Are you interested in making a connection with the lives of women of the past? Would you like to make your own handmade, natural wool yarn? Join us for the first installment of our new workshop series with a cozy morning by the fireside in the Bonner Kitchen, and take part in the timeless art of spinning.

We will begin with an in-depth look at the history and basic mechanics of spinning, after which participants will be provided with hands-on instruction in the use of a drop spindle, and an opportunity to try their hand with a spinning wheel as well. Participants will take home their very own drop spindle and wool.

Tickets are $50 and include supplies for spinning and a take-home project, and light refreshments. Registration ends January 18th. Tickets may be purchased online on our Facebook page, or you can call to reserve a spot at 252.923.2971.
