Spin fiber into functional art that sets projects apart! Join popular spinner and PLY Magazine founder Jacey Boggs Faulkner, and experience the incredible feeling of spinning art yarn on your own wheel. During class, Jacey will guide you through all the timeless spinning techniques you need to create incredible new looks and textures. Along the way, you'll learn how to create three must-have single-ply textures. As you move on, you'll conquer a variety of methods for combining plies to create spirals, coils and supercoils. Want to work on your ply control skills? Jacey will show you the steps to haloes, stacks and loops, before moving on to core spinning and tail spinning. Plus, you'll learn how to add embellishments to your yarns and finish them so they're ready for knitting or crocheting!
Meet your instructor, Jacey Boggs Faulkner, and set up your spinning wheel. Learn the history behind art yarns (no, this isn't a new craft!) and review different materials like batts, silk hankies, combed mohair and other types of fiber. Jacey will teach you to spin a gorgeous yarn!
Review textured single-ply materials as Jacey demonstrates how to spin extreme fiber made from various kinds of material. Then learn the trick to spinning thick and thin yarn for the most balanced feel. Finally, learn a more advanced yarn technique: beautiful single-ply beehives and cocoons!
Spin two-ply yarns for a rich feel to your fabrics! After spinning thick and thin yarn, use it to make a gorgeous spiral ply, and spin super coils with differential tension. Next, learn the advanced coil as you move to switch tensions. Finally, make stacks, haloes and loops to add variety.
