About the Course
A relaxing weekend of wool craft in the Yorkshire Dales.
Over the course of the weekend we will show you how to knit something lovely for you to take home, with options for complete beginners and those who can already knit.
Try producing your own yarn using a traditional spinning wheel and experience the different kinds of fleeces produced by our native sheep.
We will provide all equipment including locally sourced British wool from our native breeds.
Watch the sunrise at spectacular Malham Cove on Saturday morning.
Traditional craft, good company, good food and relaxation in a grade II listed Dales cottage set in the beautiful village of Malham.
