Regular price £55.00

Tax included.

Date and Time

 

Due to Plymouth being in Tier 3 Covid restrictions all of our workshops are currently on hold until further notice.

If you would like to be placed on a waiting list for a particular course please pop us an email.

 

This course is aimed at beginners but I am happy to adapt to suit your needs and preferred focus. We will begin by making our own spindles and having a go at spinning on them. We will then explore different types of fibre and their preparations whilst also learning to spin on a spinning wheel. There will be the option to use a selection of other fibre preparation equipment, such as hand carders and wool combs, if desired. 

 

 

What You will learn:

The main focus will be learning to spin on the spinning wheel. However, you will also have a chance to learn how to prepare fibre ready for spinning in a variety of ways. There will also be a chance to explore and use different types of pre-prepared fibres and study a raw fleece. 

 

 

 

What you will need to bring

If you have your own wheel that you would like to learn on then you are welcome to bring this, although spinning wheels will be available. Everything else is provided.

A face mask or face covering 

We will supply a mid session hot drink but if you need more than this please bring when you need with you.

I am a qualified teacher and, after teaching primary school for 13 years, I decided to give it up. However , I didn’t want to leave the teaching behind completely so, after completing the ‘Guild of Spinners and Weavers Foundation Certificate in Spinning' I decided to start teaching something I am very passionate about – spinning yarn.

Testimonials

Thank you so much for my necklace and earrings. My sons were quite bemused that a vendor knew me by name and your personal touch made us all feel good. So much nicer than the faceless Amazon or even the posh mens clothing stores that I frequented (virtually) over Christmas.

I love the necklace and earrings - you were right they do match and I will share your site with friends

Myself and my daughter came in to choose a pattern to get us back into sewing again. Lizzy was so helpful, talking us through all of the patterns she has and what fabrics would suit the pattern and our skill level. We are so exicited to get started and thats thanks to Lizzy's patience and help in the shop. We can't wait to come on one of your workshops.
