Our February  workshop wth Anna Crutchley - Experiments with cord spinning  was a great success and I hope to have pics  on the Gallery page very soon.

These cords can be used in many ways as piping, edgings and tie- backs in soft furnishings or as components for embroidery or jewelery.

All the students left with cords to be proud of and lots of ideas I’m sure.

The workshop in March is ‘Why long draw?’ With Pam Austin -

Pam will have 12 students in a semi-circle round her and everyone else who is interested can sit behind.  The 12 students will be given BFL tops to learn this technique with.  It can be tried with any breed but  BFL is particularly easy to spin.

The demo, talk and tuition will continue all day with regular breaks and everyone is included if they bring their wheel and some fibre.

Pam is also an Ashford dealer and if you would like to order anything she will bring it with her and anything over £100 attracts a 10% discount.  She has also just had her book printed ‘ Hand spinning- essential technical and creative skills’ and will be bringing some  with her.

There is only one place left on this workshop.  Ring 01787 462172 to book
