I really enjoyed the Beginners Spinning workshop at the Red Lion in Newburgh. Cathy was brilliant and explained the basics before demonstrating this beautiful craft and helping each participant to embark on their individual spinning journey. The pace was relaxed and the atmosphere friendly and encouraging. Highly recommended!

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..

This is a fantastic introduction into dyeing yarns and fibre. Cathy is so knowledgable and informative and encouraged us to experiment with the dyes. We all came away with fabulous skeins and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This course is highly recommended

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!
