This class is a hands-on experience with a real angora rabbit! You will learn to take care of, groom, harvest the wool, spin, and weave a simple pouch with angora wool. The class will start on Friday evening with learning how to build a spindle with CD disks. Students will practice spinning with the CD spindle. We will spin English, French, German, and Satin Angora wool and use the wool to make a simple woven pouch on a cardboard loom. The spindle, loom, and all the materials are the students to use and take home after the class. If you prefer to not use the Angora wool to weave with, wool yarn will be provided. 

Class Note: If you have an allergy to angora, this class is not for you.  

An additional supply fee of $20 will be collected by the instructor at the beginning of the class.
