Spinning Yarn Course

Spinning Yarn Course

  • Tutor: Dee Sayce
  • Room: Art Room
  • Type: Adult
  • Level: Mixed


Make your own yarn using the ancient craft of spinning. This is a satisfying way to create your own colourful and textured yarn to use in knitting, crochet or textile craft projects.

This two-day workshop aims to teach you the basics of spinning which includes how to sort and wash sheep fleece, card fleece into rolags ready for spinning, and spin sheep fleece using both a drop spindle and a spinning wheel. We will spin a variety of sheep breeds fleece, alpaca and coloured fleece. By the end of the workshop you will hopefully have enough skills, knowledge and confidence to spin your own yarn independently.

The cost of this course includes a packed lunch - please let us know as far in advance as possible if you have any dietary requirements/allergies.
