Sheep to Skein – Learn to Spin Workshops

Saturday 27th April-Thursday 13th June 2024

Meet the sheep! Experience the feel of 'raw' wool and how to prepare it. Then create a yarn using just your fingers. Progress to spinning a single thread using a simple spindle, then ply the thread to produce a yarn with strength and balance, and wind it into a skein ready to knit or weave. When you can do this, progress to using one of several different spinning wheels and learn how to make the necessary adjustments for effortless spinning. Beware: you may have just become addicted!

You will go home with one of more skeins of wool you have spun.

This Workshop is for beginners and those wanting to refresh basic spinning skills. Tutored by Anne Grassham.
