The art of hand spinning the finest lace weight yarns is an aspiration of most hand spinners. Such yarns lend themselves to the most precious projects such as wedding or christening shawls which will undoubtedly become family heirlooms. They work equally well for everyday scarves or shawls too making lightweight, floaty but insulating pieces. On this one day workshop you will spin the softest fibres into beautifully fine yarn using specific techniques which will dispel any myths or concerns you may have. It is a spinning method you will quickly fall in love with. Workshops are run as often as required by request with a maximum of three attendees to ensure sufficient space and tutor attention. I am a qualified tutor in the Life Long Learning sector and take enormous pleasure in passing on the skills of the fascinating craft of hand spinning. I look forward to welcoming you to The Spinning Barn soon. Theresa
