Woolly Workshop – Spinning Fancy Yarns

October 7 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

| £36

We will be working with combed tops dyed -locks and drumcarded batts. Core-spun yarn is the perfect technique to show off the luscious colours in striped or space-dyed top, locks and art batts, and those same tops with just a bit of extra know-how can create a very stable slubbed single.

You will then be able to combine these elements to create bulky textured yarns, spirals, flame, coils, beehives and many more.

Date: Friday 7th October, 10am-4pm

Tutor: Amanda Hannaford

Suitable for: intermediate spinners

Materials: Each student will need a spinning wheel in good working order (there won’t be time in class to sort out non-functioning wheels). Students should bring at least two empty bobbins, and a skeiner or niddy-noddy would also be useful, plus a notebook and pencil.

Cost: £36
