Three students in the clothing course at the Prefecture Okayama School for the Deaf visited the Prefecture Kurashiki Industrial High School, and learned how to spin wool on July 2.

The Deaf students spun the woolen lump into thin thread, learning how to use the "spinning machine," which one steps on a pedal on foot, from ten hearing students in the fashion skills course.

The students from both the schools will make a bag, etc. together in August, using woolen clothe produced by the Deaf students and the denim manufactured by the hearing students.
Both the schools are located in Okayama Prefecture, a part of western Japan.
