Learn to spin at our beautiful shop set inside a 17th century barn, in Braintree.
This amazing art, which allows you to create your own yarn, is amazingly relaxing and really fun!
Michele, an experienced spinner and dyer, will teach you how to operate a drop spindle using various preparations of fibre. During the class, you will use a low tech method using a CD drop spindle which will be provided for use during the class. You will also be introduced to a selection of fibre preparation methods, and there will be an opportunity at the end of the day to practise a little on a spinning wheel.
This is an all day class, to allow you to really get to grips with all aspects of spinning, and will have an hours lunch break in the middle.
All materials as well as tea/coffee and of course cake will be provided.
Please bring your order confirmation with you to the class.

I thoroughly enjoyed the spinning class. The tutor was excellent. She took us through all the processes and terminology to enable us to start spinning on our own. I liked that it was a small class only 3 of us making it a warm and friendly learning experience.
Just what I was looking and hoping for! Came away inspired and raring to go on my own! Looking forward to more classes that come up!
