About the Event
This two day workshop uses the same format as the one day workshop however it offers you more time to really consolidate all of your learning to ensure that you feel really confident before going it alone at home. It's also a good excuse for a weekend away! The two days can be tailored to your specific needs so if you have a particular area you would like to concentrate on then please let me know via email at the time of booking so that I can adapt my preparation accordingly. This allows me to teach beginners and those looking to improve making it the perfect choice for everyone.
Have you ever watched a hand spinner happily spinning soft wool into gorgeous yarns and wanted to give it a go, or felt that your knitting, crochet or weaving could be even more creative if you could spin your own yarns? Then this workshop is for you. If you have spun before and want to re-visit a forgotten skill then here is the chance to fulfil it straight away.
Our hand spinning workshops are relaxed and fun and are aimed at beginners but also suitable as a refresher covering all aspects of this enchanting and addictive skill. Workshops are held in the tranquil Norfolk countryside on our smallholding where you can meet our delightful flock of rare breed North Ronaldsay sheep and Icelandic sheep whose wool you will be spinning on the day. You will learn what to look for when choosing a good fleece for spinning. You will learn the arts of carding, spinning and plying, using the fleece from our own flock, and will make your very own skein of yarn to take home. I am more than happy for students to photograph or video aspects of the workshop to remind them at home or just to impress friends and family with! Course notes are also provided. The day is very relaxed and informal. Why not take a look at our recent reviews to see what other customers have said about us. We look forward to welcoming you very soon. What's included in the price? All equipment is available for you to use or you may bring your own if you prefer. I supply as much fibre as you need to complete your project on the day. NOTE: All refreshments are provided including home-made cakes, biscuits, fresh fruit and beverages but please bring your own packed lunch. Fleeces, ready carded fibres and equipment are available to buy on the day or from our online shop so you can continue your spinning as soon as you get home.
