update on spring workshop

The workshop will run from 10-4 on Saturday and Sunday 7th and 8th March in the Lagan room.

On Saturday Val will talk about old wheels and her research into the variety of wheels in the UK. Anyone wanting Val and David to look at an old wheel of their own should bring it along too. I'll be taking the opportunity for a bit of child-free spinning and bringing my not-so-old louet too! It'll be our usual pot-luck lunch so bring something to share and a plate/cutlery.

On Sunday Val will teach spinning with the great wheel and Hilary will also be bringing her great wheel along so there should be ample opportunity for us all to get plenty of practice. This will include learning to card for and spin using the long-draw method, so bring your carders, some wool and wheels. Again lunch will be a pot-luck affair.

Personally I can't wait for two whole days of spinning and talking fibre with my friends!

The workshop costs £20 for the two days. There are still one or two places left if people want to attend (please contact Lorna via email to book a place).
