I had the best day ever learning the basics of this new skill (one which I will continue with too). Gina is an excellent teacher and explains the process very well indeed and gives out lots of handy hints and tips to take away. I enjoyed all the practical elements, from carding both by hand and on a drum, to drop spindle spinning and then using a variety of wheels. It was fabulous to try out the different types of spinning wheel too as it became clear to the group that not one type of wheel suited us all. I came away with my own carded and spun skein of wool which I am very proud of and I am now looking to purchase my own wheel.
The venue was easy to find, very comfortable and fully accessible. To add to the full enjoyment of the session were all the refreshments made available throughout the day. All home cooked and absolutely delicious. Kate was very attentive making sure all our needs were met from the venue's point of view. All in all a great day out and definitely more than worth the money.

Highly recommend this course. Enjoyed a fabulous afternoon at this wonderful venue. Jill is an excellent tutor and gives you such a warm welcome. Very well organised course and came away with comprehensive notes which had been put together really well with binding. Clearly much thought had gone into the presentation.
The shortbread and cake were fantastic. Thankyou Jill. I will definately be booking onto another course.
