Doreen Hartzell teaches spinning and dyeing to students of all levels that are fun, creative, and confidence building. Both classes and individual instruction is available. Beginners will leave with successful first projects and skills they can build on. Students who already have some experience can learn advanced techniques and receive tailored advice to achieve their goals.
Classes and private lessons are available at the Weaver's Guild of Minnesota but other locations can be arranged. If you are interested in a class for your yarn shop or fiber group, please email Goldfish Love Fibers for rates and travel considerations depending on distance, and class sizes.
