A great course very informative and hands on. I was so pleased with the skein of wool that I came away with. Spinning is something that I had always wanted to try and this was and ideal course to really get a good feel for the process.

Response from Simply Spun:

Hi Lynn, it was lovely meeting you and thank you for the review it is much appreciate. Rosemary

Spent a fantastic morning with Rosemary at the spinning class. Such a talented teacher who knows so much and shares her knowledge in an easy and understandable way. I'd really recommend a class like this whether you're a novice like me or want to learn more about wool and spinning. The time just flew past. I loved it. Thank you Rosemary

I really enjoyed my weaving class with Rosemary. She's a very patient tutor and never having tried the craft previously, I'm now looking into getting my own hand loom so that I can pursue my life long love of textiles by creating some of my own.
