Booking Info



In this beginners spinning class, you will learn to make your own yarn using the ancient craft of spinning. Spinning sheep fleece and other fibres to create colourful and textured yarns which are unique, is very fulfilling. It can then be used in a knitting, crochet or craft project. Spinning is a very rhythmic and meditative process which can be a calming experience.

This workshop is also suitable for those with more experience who want to improve their technique or go back to basics after a break from spinning.

    I SO loved this course. The tutor was patient beyond belief and really helped me to become comfortable using a drop spindle. I’m hoping to teach it to our girlguides

    Great day. opportunity to drop spindle, draft, mix fibres, look at diff wool & get onto a wheel. i had been to some evening classes but a block of 5 hrs was very good for me. I still spin & went on to buy my own wheel

    Had a fantastic day – can’t believe how much the tutor managed to teach in one session’ from a fleece to a ball of wool and such fun too. Dee is a mine of information.

    Dee’s classes are just the right mix of instruction, hands on, extra information and one to one help. She explains at the beginning what she is intending to cover but she is happy for students to pursue the aspect of the subject they are most interested in.

    I really enjoyed this spinning class. Never done any spinning before so learning the drop spindle and then onto using the spinning wheel was a great way to learn. Did some hand carding then used a drum carder mixing colours ready to create a lovely yarn. Dee is a great teacher and spends time to make sure you’re getting the hang of it and the best from her class.

    Had such a wonderful time at the spinning day. Learnt so much and enjoyed being in a small group with others equally interested in all things woolly! Before this day I had become somewhat frustrated with spinning as a beginner, but now I feel confident and the very next day got my wheel out and spun another bobbin full with ease and confidence! Thank you Dee!

    The workshop was absolutely amazing – I already knew a little about fleeces but learned so much more. Dee (tutor) was very patient and broke things down really well even for people like me who have some challenges with sequencing movement! Lots of opportunities to spin and try different materials, I will definitely be spinning at home. Thank you!
