About the Course

This 4 hour course is a follow on to the full day Beginners' Workshop and is also suitable for spinners who have been learning at home without having had any formal tuition.

It focusses on tips and tricks for using a spinning wheel, pre-preparing the fibre, joining on new fibre, controlling thickness and adjusting tension using the braking system. We will also learn a new plying technique and have plenty of time for general practice of your emerging spinning skills.
