Announcing a brand new partnership, one that I am VERY excited to tell you about!
Starting in August, I will be teaching Introduction to Drop Spindle Spinning to small groups at the most wonderful Neighborhood Fiber Company. [who, by the way, are celebrating TEN years of being in business! More about that in a moment.]
These classes are small group classes that feature my highly successful, tried-and-true curriculum that has made the more doubtful spinning newbie into a budding fiber artist. Your class fee covers three hours of instruction, plus a drop spindle and fiber – everything you need to get started spinning a lovely yarn! More info and the sign-up page is here: http://neighborhood-fiber-co.myshopify.com/products/intro-to-drop-spindle-spinning?variant=22924995270
Also, I will be joining Karida and company at Neighborhood Fiber Company on July 23rd, 2016, for their big ten year anniversary party, where I will be demonstrating spindle spinning and answering your questions about spinning. There will also be demos from Ann Weaver [steeking!], Astrid Albert [weaving], and Freda Mohr [crocheted jewelry], and Letta Moore [candle making]. And of course there will be refreshments and also custom/dyed to order yarns as well as previews of new colorways! Definitely stop by, it will be an amazing time. https://www.facebook.com/events/644674452351877
Book a One-on-One Class!
One on one classes are offered on an on-demand basis, within a selected schedule that offers options for weekday or weekend sessions. Small classes allow students may get the most out of their time with their teacher. Current class offerings are Intro to Spinning on a Spinning Wheel, or Spinning Textured Yarns. You may also purchase a block of time for open tutoring in any spinning subject; please make sure to specify what you are interested in when you book your class.
You have some options as to where classes can happen! I am currently a traveling teacher; I usually teach in coffee shops, Panera, or a comparable location. Drop me an email or call and we’ll chat about places near you!
I use Appointy for booking classes online – if you have any questions or issues, please let me know. You will be asked to make an account, but it is free and easy. You can click on the button to the right to see the current schedule availability and choose a date, or you can click the button below to go to the Appointy page to do the same.
About rescheduling and cancellations:
Full refunds will be given for any classes cancelled by the instructor. Class sessions canceled due to weather conditions will be rescheduled.
Students who withdraw from a paid class more than 48 hours before the start of the class will receive full credit toward a future class. Students who cancel with less than 48 hours notice forfeit their class fee unless they reschedule. Rescheduling is encouraged; however, rescheduling a class with less than 24 hours notice will result in a $10 fee. I work hard to prepare for classes, so I encourage students to be prompt and treat their time accordingly. [as I will yours!]
Currently I have the option to schedule Intro to Spinning on a Drop Spindle and Intro to Spinning on a Wheel classes listed, as well as private classes that are designed to your needs. To develop a private class just for you, I encourage you to call or email Christiane to discuss your wishes.
About the Introduction to Spinning on a Wheel Class:
I teach spinning with a spinning wheel using your wheel or mine; I provide fiber, and detailed instructions, book recommendations, and website references for students to take home. I spend time educating the students about the general history of spinning, and I explain the differences in fibers and preparation [and I bring a ton of various fibers as visual/textural reference]. I cover different styles of wheels and how to maintain one, and a bit about yarn construction – then I get the students spinning. I’ll introduce plying and explain how to skein, measure, and set the twist in yarn. Students will leave with yarn that they can knit or crochet!
Starting in 2016, you will be able to shop with Threeravens Fiber Studio at the Baltimore Farmers Market & Bazaar every month from April – December! We will be vending and demonstrating fiber arts during select dates throughout the market season. We are very honored and excited to be a part of the biggest farmers market in Baltimore!
