This workshop will teach you to spin a yarn from a sheep’s fleece, as well as dyeing yarn from plant material. Two dye pots will be simmering during the day so that two colours will be shimmering by the end of the course. While the dye-pots simmer, you will learn to sort, tease and spin a woollen yarn on a drop spindle.
There will be a spinning wheel for those who advance to be able to use it.
