The Spinning Barn

Hand Spinning Workshops, Rare Breed Wool & Equipment

Thank you for visiting The Spinning Barn.

Whether you are looking for hand spinning workshops, Rare Breed wool or hand crafted spinning equipment then I would be delighted to help you. Our workshops are held on our Norfolk smallholding where we keep a flock of endangered North Ronaldsay sheep whose wool is used in our workshops and is available in our SHOP ready to spin.

I am passionate about the fascinating, ancient craft of hand spinning. I have been teaching hand spinning for several years and take great pleasure in helping others achieve their spinning goals too.  This craft has sustained mankind for thousands of years and in more recent times has seen a huge interest from those looking to live a more sustainable life, or knitters looking to create their very own unique yarns. 

So whether you have been longing to try hand spinning or you have spun in the past but feel a bit rusty then there will be a workshop for  you. Or perhaps you have been spinning for a while but would like to expand your knowledge and create more interesting and varied yarns then I can help with that too. And if you are looking for an unusual gift idea then you can also purchase Gift Certificates to present for that special occasion.

James hand crafts a range of equipment but we are most proud of our own design Drum Carder. This can be found with our other products in our SHOP.

We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you soon.

Theresa and James
