Learn to Spin with Amanda Hannaford

February 19 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm GMT


This is one not to miss! The very experienced spinner and highly skilled tutor, Amanda Hannaford is coming back to The Loom Shed to teach us how to spin right from the very beginning!

So if you’re completely new to spinning, but always wanted to have a go, this workshop is for you. Amanda will start by introducing you to a large basket of clean wool straight from the sheep’s back, and all the tools you need to turn the wool into useable yarn.

We will use specially designed wire brushes to turn the wool into fluffy rolls, and then add twist using a hand spindle to make the loose fibres into yarn. There will be spinning wheels on hand to try, if you’d like to take your newfound hobby further, and we’ll also experiment with mill-prepared wool if you don’t know any friendly sheep!

Amanda will provide all equipment and materials, so you don’t need to source anything. If you do have your own spinning wheel, you are welcome to bring it with you and Amanda will make sure it’s in good working order and that you can use it comfortably.

As with all our workshop, a lovely lunch and plenty tea, coffee and biscuits are included.
