An in-person class with Esther Rodgers

Mar 4, 9:00am-12:00pm

Corespinning is a wonderfully versatile technique. It allows you to create an extremely textured, bulky yarn or the ultimate smooth yarn with drape — and everything in between! It’s perfect for those who love to spin unprocessed fiber, to keep the texture of the fiber or tame it, or to stretch a luxury fiber.
