Skill Level Information:
Suitable for all spinners, from beginner to more advanced. There will be something to learn at all levels.

Tutor Bio:
After a rather disastrous encounter with a drop spindle, Becks started spinning on a wheel in 2011 while living in a tiny apartment in Manchester. She well and truly fell down the rabbit hole of spinning. After building up a sizeable stash of handspun skeins, she focused her learning on being purposeful about the yarn she produced.

An educator by trade with a background in film and television, Becks combined her professional experience and love of fibre arts in 2017 with the launch of her YouTube channel, Tiny Fibre Studio. There she shares the projects she’s working on and provides instructional content for other spinners. She also teaches in-person and online spinning classes.
