Learn How to Spin on a Spinning Wheel - Beginners Class


Have you wondered how the woollen fleece from a sheep can be turned into yarn?

Then come along to this one day class on how to spin on a spinning wheel and you will learn how.

In the morning you will learn how to turn fibre (fleece from a sheep) into yarn and create a singles yarn. Then in the afternoon you will make another singles yarn by using hand-carded and blended fibre. Finally, you will ply these together to create your own unique yarn.

This workshop is suitable for beginners, and for those wanting a refresher on how to spin.

You will have the chance to spin on any of our range of Louët and Schacht spinning wheels so do say at the start of the class if there's a specific wheel you'd like to try.

If you have your own wheel then do bring it along so you can spin on it yourself on the day.

Class cost £70 for the whole day and includes the use of spinning wheels and fibre.

Each student will receive a £10 Weft Blown gift voucher on the day of the class that can be used to buy spinning or weaving equipment or handwoven textiles at Weft Blown.

Class runs from 11.00 to 17.00.

Maximum of 3 students per class.

Tea, coffee, and biscuits are provided.
Lunch is available from local cafes and deli. You can also bring your own lunch.
