Beginner hand spinning - 1 to 1 instruction
West Sussex
£85
This is a workshop designed for the beginner hand spinner or for those who have tried to learn to spin but are still struggling.

This course is designed for the beginner and will include dyes such as Madder (oranges and pinks) Weld (yellow) and Indigo (blue) as well as other plant dyes...
