Description

Hand spinning tuition from my beautiful workshop just outside the Exmoor town of Wiveliscome. Join me to explore natural fibres and learn to spin fleeces from our flock of rare breed sheep. Using a drop spindle or spinning wheel, learn to spin, ply and finish your very own yarn. We will also explore plant fibres and learn about the sheep breeds and sustainability. One-day and two-day workshops are available for individuals and small groups. The course includes unlimited fleece from our high welfare, blade shorn flock, as well as a chance to meet the sheep.
