Spinning Course

Spinning Courses at The Threshing Barn
Price : £75

We run two types of spinning courses. The first of our Spinning Courses is a beginner’s day to learn how to sort a fleece and prepare for carding, to take the wheel apart and learn about all the components, the ratios, single and double drive etc. Spinning starts on a drop spindle and moves to a wheel.

Finally learn how to ply, make a hank and wash your spun wool. Even our sheep will be impressed by your end result!

The next level of Spinning Courses is for accomplished spinners wishing to create fancy yarns with slubs, beads, curls of wool, bouclé and cable patterns.
