About the Course
Handspun yarns with Lea
A whole five hour workshop just for you in fiber art bliss and all things handspinning whether you are a complete beginner, or looking to or build your creativity and confidence with creative spinning and art yarn. This is a wonderful and inspiring opportunity to learn lots in order to get you started with spinning your first yarns, or growing your creative expression all in a peaceful, and supportive creative environment.
This bespoke workshop will start from scratch to help you learn creative fiber carding and blending, colour work, creating texture and making things with your handspun yarns. You can also learn wild creative spindling, wild knitting, weaving, crochet, felting & fiber arts. The workshop is tailored especially for you to include whatever you need.
You can choose to book as many days as you would like; either book for a day workshop or we have a holiday cottage, glamping pod, cabin, or gypsy caravan available to book to create yourself a fabulous craft holiday here in the Welsh hills.
If you love fiber arts and spinning you can come back and work on new skills and projects with me in an ongoing fiber arts course, booking workshops as and when you would like them as parts of your course.
The holiday accommodation can get booked up quickly in spring and summertime so if you are looking for a residential place for this workshop weekend book asap to secure your room!
Please message me more more info on the holiday accommodation.

What's included in the price?
A five hour workshop of spinning tuition & creative guidance, tea/coffee/herbal teas.
Gorgeous spinning fiber packs are available to buy in our gallery shop, or you can bring along your own (if you already spin yarn and are wishing to get more creative with your spinning it is advisable to purchase fiber here so that you have a full pallet of colours and textures to work and learn with).
It is better for you to bring your own spinning wheel (in good working order) but I do have a spare wheel available to use during the class for one student if you don't have your own yet.
Please bring along a packed lunch, or if you prefer there are lovely cafes in the nearby town of Montgomery.
Course dates are flexible; please get in touch for the next available date.
