New for September

I now have the date of the first workshop of A/W 2010 at Once A Sheep.

Improve Your  Spinning (for wheel spinners) 25th Sept 2010
  • The workshop runs from 10:30 to 3:30
  • A course for anyone who can spin, even if not very well, but also suitable for those who are competent at basic techniques and want to improve their repertoire

  • We will look at how to spin different thicknesses of yarn, how to produce different types of yarns and how to use different fibres to best effect (and have the chance to try some of them out and learn how best to use them)

  • We will have some fun with plying techniques and learn to make 3 ply yarns and use plying to get different effects

  • Bring your own wheel or borrow one from Once A Sheep

  • Coffee, tea and biscuits are provided, lunch can be obtained from one of the many coffee shops, bakeries, bars or restaurants close by

  • Cost: £45.00

  • 3 places available
The dates of more workshops will follow soon.
