Learn to spin your own yarn at the SweetGeorgia Studio!

This Winter, we are offering Beginner sessions for 4 weeks, starting on Saturday, January 13 to February 3, 2018.

Over the course of 4 weeks, students will receive an in-depth introduction to the skills required to spin your own yarn for knitting or weaving. Students will learn the basics of how to use a spinning wheel, develop familiarity with different types of fibre, learn to create the type of yarn they desire, and how to play with colour.

  • Classes take place from 10 am to 12 pm on Saturday mornings
  • Class fees includes materials
  • A limited number of spinning wheels will be available to rent at no additional cost (deposit required). First come, first served.
  • Optional materials list for students: pencil, paper, camera. If you have a spinning wheel, please bring it. Also, if you have a lazy kate, 3-4 empty bobbins, and a niddy noddy.

Classes are held at the SweetGeorgia Yarns Studio at 110-408 East Kent Avenue South near Main Street and Marine Drive in Vancouver. Access to transit is very limited. Plenty of free parking is available.

Katrina, a professional photographer by trade, has had an obsession with fibre all her life. She learned to knit and crochet as a child, but her passion was truly ignited when she learned to spin in 2014. She loves the thought that every individual who looks at a braid of fibre or runs their fingers over a skein of yarn will create their own unique functional piece of art. Something to be enjoyed for years to come. You can find her on Instagram as @craftyjaks or on Ravelry as CraftyJAKs.
