Weave a Scarf Workshop

In-person course
Adele - - #32721

Had the best day learning how to weave, using beautiful yarns in a vast array of colours. The tutors Jessamy and Sophia were very knowledgeable and right on hand but also did not hover. The length of the course is just right to come away with your own personally designed scarf.
Brilliant!

Cathy set a perfect balance between support and letting us get on with it! Her wools are beautiful and I think everyone was really proud of our weaving projects today. Thank you Cathy

Thank you Cathy and Jean for a great day of spinning at one of Black Sheep Wools workshops. I had a great time yesterday and learned a lot.
Cathy and her mum (Jean), are very patient, and certainly knowledgeable about their craft, and I would recommend them to anybody. I am now a lot more confident about my spinning after only a few hours with Cathy and Jean, and I actually took a skein of usable yarn home, which I spun myself at the workshop.

Response from Lazykate:

Spent the day with Cathy and het mum yesterday at Ovis Yarns in Liverpool. Lovely day, very relaxed but informative teaching. I came away with a useable hank of yarn and enough knowledge to continue practicing at home. I would thoroughly recommend Cathy as a tutor for spinning.

Attended a beginner spinning workshop with Cathy and her Mum Jean today. They are such lovely, friendly, knowledgable ladies, making it easy to learn a new skill. Nothing is too much trouble and they are both only too happy to help and pass on any tips...so much so that I came away with a hank of yarn spun by me! Would definitely recommend Cathy’s classes...if you are thinking about it..go on, give it a try..you won’t regret it..

Excellent course - really enjoyed it when I participated today (11/02/17). Cathy set a very comfortable, homely, reassuring atmosphere and we all achieved a great deal in the half day. I took home my project with some extra embroidery thread to help me finish it, and worked on it some more this afternoon. Just lovely. Would really recommend. LLxx

I've been spinning for about 12 months, completely self-taught and wanted some expert guidance to improve my technique. Cathy is a lovely teacher, very patient and great one-to-one tuition where needed, we were soon off to a great start. I picked up some valuable tips which I take away to my home spinning, newly enthused and raring to go! Thank you, Cathy, for an enjoyable day, friendly atmosphere and an excellent setting, shop and cafe at Black Sheep in Culcheth to make us feel totally spoilt!

Myself and my mother-in-law attended a beginners spinning day with Cathy and Jean this week and it was absolutely fantastic! We both had a wonderful time and had produced our first skein by the end of the day! Cathy and Jean made us so welcome and at ease, it made the whole day fun! It has definitely started something and I can't wait to start practising again! Thank you Cathy and Jean!

Just had a day of beginner's spinning with Cathy and Jean at Knit Wise and it was wonderful! I was given the workshop as a gift - must be one of the best ever birthday presents. At the start of the session I couldn't quite believe I would be able to produce anything useable, but with patient help from both Cathy and Jean, I left with 4 skeins of beautiful yarn that I intend to dye, then knit. All that, with homemade flapjack as a bonus!

I recently took Cathy's beginner spinning workshop at Black Sheep Wools in Warrington. It was the most fun I've ever had with wool! Having never tried it before, with Cathy's expert tuition I managed to spin 50yds of aran weight yarn! Cathy is so patient & helpful & so is her lovely mum. Thank you Cathy for introducing me to a wonderful craft that I've been longing to try. If you're reading this I strongly recommend you take the class. You will not be disappointed.

Saw Cathy's courses advertised, and was intrigued as spinning was something I had never thought of trying. I was taught in a small group, and was encouraged by Cathy's enthusiasm and patience. I had a successful lesson and learnt to spin. At my request Cathy then went out of her way to help me find a wheel of my own. I am now happy to recommend Cathy's courses to anyone who is interested in learning to spin.
