Part 1 of the Wild Drop Spindling Art Yarns Course - An exciting and inspiring summer workshop!
(must be well practiced at basic spinning and plying two ply yarn on a drop spindle to do this course)

Sunday 11am - 5pm - We will go out onto the land here at Pachamama Glamping (if the weather is fine - if not we will work in the cosy Wild Creative Textiles studio)
Working on large rustic hand carved and embellished drop spindles, get creative with colour and texture, and learn inspiring techniques to create your own unique art yarns on a drop spindle. Also learn ways to prepare your fiber for art yarn spinning.

A fun and exciting way to learn art yarn spinning without the huge cost of setting up with a special spinning wheel to handle art yarns!

You will need to be well practiced in basic spinning and plying (two ply) on a drop spindle to do this course.

This is a small group workshop so you will have loads of personal attention & creative guidance.

A workshop to encourage your creativity, with full support and guidance, so you can build confidence to be more creative with textile art to create your very own one of a kind work.

Treat Yourself to part one of this creative course: £50
Included in price:
* 5 hours of tuition & creative guidance
* A wild drop spindle to use during the workshop (available to buy at the end of the workshop to take home if you wish)
* Tea, coffee & herbal teas & sweet treat
* Fiber not included so you can bring along your own selection of your favorite colours and textures of fibers, or if you prefer, I have bags of mixed colours & textures available to buy in the shop here, plus gorgeous hand dyed rovings and textured batts.
* Please bring along packed lunch and a notebook.

There are only a small amount of places available at this workshop so that you will get plenty of personal attention.
