About the Course

In this beginner level drop spindling workshop, we will be learning how to spin loose fibre tops into yarn. Starting with drafting and preparing the fibres and then onto developing spinning techniques using a drop spindle. There will be an opportunity to try out different fibres during the workshop such as bamboo, banana and recycled sari’s. You will be leaving the session having spun your very own yarn, ready to knit, weave and sew with!

Your teacher Tiya Dahyabhai is a textile artist whose workshops centre on utilizing the properties of our natural resources. Her sessions act as an educational tool, demonstrating the accessibility of traditional textile skills in order to stimulate curiosity of the potential of materials.
