Come and enjoy a day workshop at the Farm
Last Saturday of the month
£49.50 per day 10am to 4pm
Light lunch and refreshments provided
We will begin by looking at fleece and the carding process then use a drop spindle to get the hang of spinning. We can then progress to the wheel and learn this technique and look at plying. Do keep in mind that different people learn at different speeds so we cannot say you will definitely go home with a ball of handspun wool but that is what we would aim for! 100 grams of fleece included. You can purchase more if needed.
Small Equipment Weaving
Come and have a go on hand held weave-it looms, peg looms, weaving sticks and card weaving. Weave with our yarn or raw fleece. 100 grams of yarn or fleece included.
Weaving on Rigid Heddle Looms
Using one of our looms learn to dress a loom and weave off a piece of fabric for a scarf or cushion cover of your choice. Look at different weaving techniques and designs. We supply materials and equipment.
Use our hooks and yarns to learn the basic stitches - slip stitch, double crochet and treble crochet - as well as pattern reading. We will explore other techniques, look at design and work on an easy first project to continue at home while more advanced crocheters can work on a more intricate scale.
