The 54th Seminar 2018: A Spinning Odyssey

od·ys·sey  n. an eventful journey filled with adventure

The Ontario Handspinning Seminar is Ontario's annual three day gathering for spinners. Founded in 1964, the Seminar provides a location for spinners of all levels of experience to meet, take workshops, share their work, learn new techniques, shop and be inspired by each other.  The Seminar moves around the Province to allow easy access for all.  Each year the organizing committee selects a theme for the event and all workshops and activities focus on this main idea.  Most importantly, the Ontario Handspinning Seminar brings together our community of spinners for a weekend of creativity and collaboration.​

​The Seminar travels west to the city of London and returns to Western University (UWO), June 8 to 10, 2018. Join us as we explore our love of spinning and look back to our roots of using academic spaces for a weekend of learning, sharing and fun.  The organizing committee has published our annual Spring Newsletter - continue on the website to see all of the exciting details that await us in...
