WORKSHOPS 2023

THE LAST WORKSHOP FOR 2023

The Twining Workshop at the November meeting went very well and was enjoyed by all.

Catherine had brought all the materials needed and prepped the first sample so we could start straight away once she had explained the technique.  Very helpful.  See the ‘Gallery page’ for photos.

Hope that everyone will finish and bring the results to the January meeting ‘Show n Tell’

Our next Workshop at the February meeting will be ‘Dartmoor Dye Day’, led by Lesley Ottewell, who has kindly stepped in as Janine can’t make that day now.


Please bring:

Skein or skeins of wool or other animal fibre.

Protective clothing, rubber gloves

Plastic bag to take work home in.

Newspaper and if possible, a small  squeezy bottle with fine nozzle.

Would save time if you could presoak the skein in a dilution of vinegar and water.  

The workshop fee is £10 and there are 10 places.
