The Certificate of Competence in Hand Spinning Parts A and B are available to all members of the Guild as a self-guided study comprehensive spinning course. The course was set up by members of the Guild to maintain a standard of spinning knowledge and skills throughout the spinning community.
Parts A and B look at spinning equipment and tools, and fibre studies on a wide variety of fibres such as wool, silk, mohair, ramie and the regenerated fibres of soy silk and ingeo. In addition Part B deals with the design aspects of yarn. The Guild is also looking to offer those students who complete Parts A and B an opportunity in the future for further study with a Masters in Hand spinning, which is currently being developed.
In November we will be holding an Information Day for anyone interested in finding out more about the course. Current students are also welcome to attend to reinvigorate, ask any specific questions they might have regarding their current study, or look at past students workbooks. If you’d like any further information regarding the course or the Information Day, feel free to contact the Registrar, Anthea Payne at the Guild.
The only hand spinning course like it in Australia!
