My Grandmother first started teaching me to spin when I was four years old. I used to go with her to all the local country shows and 'help'! It's such a wonderful hobby and especially with today's emphasis on sustainability and self-sufficiency, it's an invaluable skill. This introduction to spinning is perfect for anyone wanting to have a go and learn a bit about the craft. Spend the day spinning your own skein of yarn to take home whilst learning the background and process from sheep to shoulder. You will be using an Ashford Traditional spinning wheel and there will be demonstrations on using various equipment such as carders, niddy noddys and ball winders. You will receive a free goody bag that includes fleece of your choice to spin with that day and a few surprise extras! There is also information and handouts from the day. Should you wish to practice these skills further or spin more yarn to make something out of, you can book to use the equipment at an additional rate. Workshops are held on the first Sunday of each month. There are limited spaces and they fill up fast! Alternatively, one to one sessions are available, I am willing to travel a reasonable distance from North Dorset.

What's included in the price
