Saturday 25th May 1.30 – 4.00

In small groups of up to 4 people, learn the basics of fleece preparation and spinning on a spinning wheel. Suitable for beginners and also those with a little experience and wanting a refresh, these introductory sessions will look at different fibres for spinning, carding and preparing the fleece and spinning and plying yarn. There will also be an opportunity to try different types of wheels. Some manual dexterity is required for this activity.

The process of spinning on a traditional wheel can be relaxing and meditative once you get into the rhythm of it. You will be guided through the process and will have the chance to experiment with different colours and fibres.

The venue is the ColourWorks dyeing studio in the historic Covered Yard in Lancaster city centre.

Sessions are 2.5 hours with a short refreshment break.

If we are fully booked and you are interested, do get in touch and we can add you to the waiting list for this and future workshops.
