Wool Spinning

Wool, wheel and wonderment!  That’s the agenda for this 1-hour spinning demonstration.  Our expert spinster will spin a tale of history, necessity and technique as she shows your audience how plant and animal fibers are turned into the threads and yarns that weave our lives in cloth.  Watch wool washing, spindle and wheel spinning and touch a basketful of different plant and animal fibers.  And be prepared to be thankful for the clothes on your back.

 


In this 1-hour program, you’ll receive:

• An engaging and skilled presenter
• A lesson in the history and technique of spinning
• Visual and sensory aids
• A fun and informative program for people from kindergarten through old age
