Spinning fibers into yarn has long been a fascination with people around the world.  All human people have some form and way to spin the materials native to their place and region, into workable yarn.  These yarns were then either plied or left in singles to be made into clothing, mats, nets, and enclosures, a necessity for the living of life.  Coast Salish Wool Weavings, the indigenous weave style of our region, utilized a spindle whorl to create these yarns. In Paimarire, the Fiber Arts Studio, we will learn how to draft and spin singles on the spindle whorl. We will then ply those singles utilizing the suspended ring method.  We may also be introduced to other spinning methods in class: thigh spinning, drop spindle spinning, treadle spinning, and electric spinning.
