About the Course

A fun day playing with wool. You decide what you want to focus upon. Learn about the fleece and how it is prepared, washed and carded. Have a go at spindle spinning and then progress onto a wheel to spin your own skein of hand-spun wool.

The day is meant to be fun and relaxing and whilst you will learn a lot you will also find the stresses of the world just pass you by. You will also learn a little about the special sheep we get our wool from and how important it is to source your wool carefully. Our wool comes from named sheep on small farms that use no chemicals or dye markers - so our wool is natural and we like to keep it that way.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
