Until the end of the 18th century all of the yarn and thread used to make clothing and other textiles was spun by hand. While spinning can appear magical, it is a magic that almost anyone--from children to the elderly--can master, starting with the drop spindle. 

In this class we will start out with the park-and-draft method of learning and everyone will be able to progress at their own pace. There will also be a few different kinds of spinning wheels and other fibers that people will be able to try out and experiment with when they feel comfortable. Drop spindles will be available for purchase for those that wish to take them home for more practice.

This workshop will be held at the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation--please use GPS address 3900 North Sandy Flash Drive, Newtown Square, PA 19073.  Light refreshments will be available but we recommend eating lunch before arriving. This workshop will be held rain or shine; tickets are non-refundable, and class is limited to 12 participants. Ages 12 and up please.  In the event of dangerous weather this workshop may be moved to the Ridley Creek State Park mansion/office nearby.
