Learn to Spin
Part 1 - Saturday 30th March 2019 2pm - 4pm
Part 2 - Saturday 6th April 2019 2pm - 4pm
In part one you will learn about your spinning wheel and get to grips with the basics of spinning. You will get the chance to try drop spinning and wheel spinning and we will supply some fibre for you to take away with you to practice on at home if you have a wheel. (We can loan drop spindles to take away if you wish)
In part two, you will tell us about your practice spinning and iron out any problems you encountered. There will be more practice, and once you are confident, you will learn some futher drafting and plying techniques (ability dependant) and hopefully end up with your own skein of handspun yarn!
We do have spare spinning wheels which we can loan for use in the workshop only, and drop spindles which we can loan for you to take home. All materials and refreshments will be provided.
There will be a maximum of 5 places. Booking can be via the website or in store only and payment will be required on booking.
