Spinning 200 – Spin Cotton on a Tahkli (1/2-day)

fibercrafts

A tahkli is a small support spindle used for spinning fine cotton threads. Spinning with a tahkli is a simple, inexpensive, very efficient and enjoyable method for spinning your yarn. Proficient tahkli spinners can be as fast as those using a wheel. Knowing how to use a tahkli is a wonderful preparation for learning how to spin cotton on a charka (the spinning tool used by Ghandi), for using a spindle-type wheel, as well as for spinning on the more traditional wheel. You will go home with a hand-made tahkli made by one of our craftsmen and some cotton to keep spinning.

This is a half-day class from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Prerequisite – None

Note: Since our workshops are specifically designed for adults, an individual must be 18 years old to enroll in a class. All students should wear practical work clothes and shoes. For your safety, we ask that you do not wear shorts or sandals to a class you are attending.

All our classes close 24 hours before the class date with the exception of classes that start on Monday, which will close the Friday before. If there's a class that closed early that you'd like to attend, please call us at 254-754-9620 to check for availability.
