Whether we use a rock, stick, spindle or wheel to spin our yarn we must first become a master/mistress of twist if we want to make yarn.

Therefore, the initial focus of this class is learning about twist, how it works in fiber, and how we can control it.

Once you understand twist  the group will practice building up twist, drafting the fiber, then letting the twist enter the drafted fiber using the park and draft technique of drop spindling.

When you are comfortable doing this one step at a time the class will try flowing from one step to the next with the drop spindle spinning away. With practice you can confidently spin the yarn of your dreams.
