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.
Level 5 focuses on spinning of cellulose and manmade fibres; spinning to measured specifications and for special purposes; and fibre reactive dyeing of cellulose fibres.
