About the Event
Hand spinning is a craft which is relaxing, absorbing, fun and so useful but there comes a time when we want to spin a specific yarn for that perfect sweater or sock pattern we have discovered. Being able to spin with an understanding of the technicalities offers the spinner more choices as to what and how to spin which I believe keeps the craft exciting and relevant in a world where relaxation and sustainability are both key.
So why not join me for a day to learn the technical aspects of spinning which includes understanding the needs of different fibres, how to get the right amount of twist and ply, and how to create the perfect DK, laceweight or chunky yarns for example. It's really not as tricky as you may think and you will leave feeling confident enough to continue at home.
I can supply all equipment if necessary and lots of fibres to experiment with too. Refreshments are provided including homemade cakes, fresh fruit and beverages. Please bring a packed lunch.
COST: £85 per person.
