About the Course

An introduction to hand spinning wool into yarn with Helen Hickman of Nellie and Eve.
£95/person 2 course lunch included.


This workshop is great if you want to refresh your skills or just fancy having a go at the traditional craft of spinning.
You’ll start by learning how to sort the fleece and card with hand and drum carders, then you’ll take a look at how the spinning wheel works. There will be three different types of spinning wheels for you to try, or bring your own spinning wheel along.
After lunch you’ll get your hands on the spinning wheel and learn how to spin the prepared wool into yarn. Helen will show you how to ply yarn and you will take some home with you as well as course notes.
