Working with textile artist, Penny, you will identify some different wools and other fibres. You will learn how to clean and card the wool. Then you will be taught how to make a ball of wool using a traditional drop spindle. You will then be able to use an easy, small vintage wooden weaving loom to create a small mat or wall hanging.
