Drop Spindle Spinning Workshop

7th May 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Learn how to spin using a drop spindle

There will be lots of wool fibre available to use throughout the workshop both dyed and natural allowing you to create and design your own hand spun yarn. As well as learning to spin you will also learn how to ply your yarn using the Andean plying technique. This workshop would be great for those who love the idea of being able to include bespoke spun elements into their craft projects. You will leave the workshop with new knowledge as well as some hand spun yarn, however not enough for your next knitting or weaving project!

This workshop is aimed at beginners with no experience. Some dexterity is needed for this workshop.

All materials and equipment will be provided for the workshop.

Tea, Coffee and Cake will be provided. You are welcome to bring along a packed lunch or eat out at lunchtime in Farsley.

Agnis Smallwood will be delivering this workshop. She is a Designer Maker Educator and has delivered textile workshops across Yorkshire for over a decade.

Please contact Agnis Smallwood if you have any questions about the workshop. [email protected]

The workshop can be refunded up until 7 days before the workshop. Please note Eventbrite’s fee is nonrefundable. In the event the workshop has to be cancelled by Agnis for any reason, for example covid restrictions or illness, your ticket will be refunded.
