Mechanics of Spinning Wheels taught by Randy Glick
During the class you will learn what your spinning wheel parts are called and how they relate and work with each other. There will be a discussion of the different types of wheels on the market and how they affect your finished yarns.
Randy will spend time with each student and discuss the specifics of the wheel you are spinning on. He will make recommendations for changes in your equipment. Finally, Randy will make maintenance recommendations so that you will get years of service from your wheel.
Students should bring a spinning wheel they like to spin on.
Randy will supply handouts outlining the class, illustrations of several types of wheel with labeled parts and 2 ounces of quality fiber.
