Spinning

Spinning yarn for a project from raw fibre is very rewarding.  At the Textile Studios spinners get together on the third Saturday of each month to spin and share their spinning experiences.  The spinners are lucky enough to have a  fleece sale once a year where a range of fleeces are available to purchase.  Beginners and more experienced members are welcome to attend these sessions and items created by the members can be included in the Craft Sales or Exhibitions held at the Textile Studios in Steeple Ashton.

A spinning course held over four weeks is available covering the steps in spinning from preparing raw fleece through to the creation of a beautiful 2 ply yarn ready to use on a final project.  This is ideal for the complete beginner or the experienced spinner who is getting back into the craft.  The 4 morning sessions are held at the Textile Studios in Steeple Ashton, Wiltshire and the cost including use of spinning wheel, fleece and other equipment is £120.

The next spinning course will be held on the 12th, 19th 26th September and 3rd October.  Places are available at present.
