The Astoria Fiber Arts Academy and 4-H have partnered to offer weaving and spinning classes for youths ages 12 to 18 in Clatsop County. The class will meet from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays for one month, starting Wednesday, at 1296 Duane St. The students will learn to create fiber projects with the theme of “Belts, Straps and Ties.”

4-H and Astoria Fiber Arts received a grant to purchase the Hansen Craft Spinner, a portable electric spinning wheel, which will be used for the class. Joann Snead and 4-H Leader Electa Mathre will be the instructors.

Space is limited. The class fee is $40 for 4-H members and $50 for nonmembers, and scholarships are available. For information, contact Mathre at 503-325-0698 or the 4-H office at 503-325-8573.
