Woolly Workshop – Woollen vs Worsted Spinning – CANCELLED

October 5, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

| £29

This course has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

Explanation of the differences between the two spinning extremes.  Hand carding for perfect rolags and spinning them with an English woollen longdraw. Hand combing and spinning worsted.

Date: Wednesday 5th 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.  Students will also need hand carders, flick carders and wool combs if they own them (but don’t go out and buy them specially – some will be provided for use in class)

Cost: £29
