Program Description

The Master Spinner Program consists of six progressive levels of classroom and independent study involving skill development, research studies and project assignments in the area of hand spinning of all major types of fibers, yarns and the end use of the spun yarns. At all levels, students are evaluated on the basis of written assignments, practical projects, oral presentations and skill development.
For a complete guide to the Master Spinner Program, please see the Master Spinner Handbook.

Program Prerequisites:

Beginning Spinning: If you have never had any spinning experience, but are interested in exploring the art, we offer a Beginning Spinning workshop during Fibre Week.

Master Spinner Level 1 requires students to be comfortable with the basic operation of a spinning wheel. This course is not a Beginner's Spinning course.
Levels 2-6 require the previous Level's class to be completed. While the completion of the previous level's independent study portion (ie - homework) is not a requirement, it is strongly recommended. Each level builds off of the previous skill developments.
