What You'll Get
Aristotle was the first to write that what separates man from beast is not our ability to reason but rather our ability to use yarn and needles to knit our own books. Craft your own copy of Poetics with today's Groupon at Heritage Spinning & Weaving in Lake Orion. Choose from the following options:
- For $10, you get $25 worth of spinning, crocheting, and knitting classes. All materials are included for the introductory classes.
- For $25, you get a six-session punch card for drop-in knitting sessions ($50 value).
Heritage Spinning & Weaving entices handcrafters with an array of knowledge-packed classes that load needles up with richly pigmented yarns and wooly wonders. Knitting newbies can forge new skill sets in one of the intro classes, learning how to knit ($25), crochet ($25), or spin straw into gold under the guidance of expert spinners. For 90 minutes, groups of 8–12 become acquainted with the first steps of spinning wool, employing a drop spindle and a spinning wheel to make usable yarn ($25). Customers can also apply the value of this Groupon to weaving classes, where smaller groups of four master the art of transforming strands of yarn into pieces of fabric or depictions of balls of yarn ($30), or a more advanced class such as the colorful Introduction to Fair Isle stranded knitting ($60). Drop-in knitting classes serve a variety of knitting needs from help with a project or learning how to knit.
