Learn the Ancient Art of Drop Spinning Yarn (Tue. 27 Feb, 2018 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm)

Come learn to spin wool yarn on a drop spindle with Amy Reisman

Ellsworth, Maine—You are invited to come learn the ancient art of spinning wool with a drop spindle. This technique is thousands of years old.  The technology that is required is simply a wooden dowel (the shaft,) a disc with a center hole (the whorl,) a hook or notch, and a length of carded wool. That’s it. All necessary items will be provided at the class.

This relaxing hobby was once the initial manufacturing process for all fabric. Drop spinning predates the spinning wheel by about 9000 years. Amy Reisman will be teaching this craft at the Beth Wright Cancer Resource Center free of charge to anyone who is interested.

The first lesson will include assembling the drop spindle, learning about the properties of wool fiber and spinning with the “Park and Draw” method.

This craft can fit easily into a pocketbook and go anywhere. Waiting rooms and car rides can be great place to practice this time-honored craft.

The classes are scheduled to take place on Tuesdays, February 13, 20, 27 and March 6, from 2:00 – 3:45 pm. Call the Center with any questions or to register 207-664-0339.
