Unfortuantely this event has been cancelled. The Box Office will be in touch if you have already purchased tickets to discuss your options.

Learn how to spin wool fibres using a traditional drop spindle and produce a single ply yarn for you to take home. Leave with knowledge of the beginning of spinning history, fibre preparation and how to ply to get stronger and more elaborate yarns.

Whether you have experience with yarn crafts or no experience at all, this workshop will prepare you to begin your spinning journey.
