I had just purchased a wheel but had never spun before so enrolled on a spinning course with Cath Snape at beechwood crafts. Cath was very welcoming and first set up my wheel. There were three learners and Cath was very patient, knowledgeable and showed us what to do. I was very impressed. We all spun throughout the day and produced some reasonable work. I would thoroughly recommend Cath and Beechwood Crafts.
