Book your workshop
Saturday 18th November 10:00-12:00 £15
Complete beginners and improvers are welcome. Suitable for either spindles or spinning wheels, we will look at how to use your tools, how to ply yarn, how to use different fibre preparations & ways to use colour in your spinning.
This will be a relaxed, fun class and you are welcome to join us for lunch afterwards (bring a packed lunch) - also there is another workshop after lunch, Spinning Art Yarns which you may wish to book on to. This is a chance to build on spinning basic yarns and learn new techniques.
If you already have a wheel or a spindle, bring it along. There will be two different spinning wheels available to try out. Jacqui can supply spindles at a cost of £20 on the day (let Kingshill House know in advance and Jacqui can order one for you). Bring along fibre if you have it, or Jacqui can supply some on the day for £5.
Art Yarn Technique Workshop
Saturday 18th November 13:00-16:00 £20
The afternoon workshop will concentrate on spinning art yarns, for people who can spin basic yarns but want to learn new techniques. Any wheel can spin art yarns, but there may be limits to the thickness of your yarn & what you can add in. Tutor Jacqui Harding will bring her specialist art yarn wheel which you are welcome to try on the day.
This will be a relaxed, experimental class, and you should take away some new skills & lots of inspiration! You are welcome to book on to the morning Learn to Spin workshop as well!
