Description

Join us at Smallholding Secrets for a day of weaving and relaxation. You will learn how to prepare fleece, set up a peg loom and weave a simple seat pad to take home with you. We will be working in the marquee, so in the fresh air, but protected from the sun or rain. With the alpacas and sheep grazing peacefully in the field ahead of you, this really is a serene environment to just 'be in the present'.

What's included in the price?

Warping thread and fleece will be provided. You will have the use of a peg loom for the day. A delicious lunch will be provided, including homemade cakes. Worth coming just for the cakes!

I spent much of my early childhood playing on my great grandmother's farm, dreaming of farming myself. My dreams came true when aged 13, my parents bought a smallholding in Carmarthenshire. As an adult, I worked in hospitality and then became a teacher, but was always anchored by the work on the smallholding. In 2021, I set up Smallholding Secrets to give others a taste of smallholding life and a chance to learn how to work with raw sheep and alpaca fleece by offering courses.
