Daytime

In this workshop, Eleanor aka 'Ezzy' will teach you all you need to know to bring to life this really old school craft. Ezzy has a passion for spinning and all things fibre related but has added a contemporary twist to this dying craft. In this workshop, you will be using amazing 3D printed Turkish Spindles! These modern tools are a delight to use and are perfectly weighted to make your spins as easy and consistent as possible.

You will learn how to attach a leader onto the spindle, how to spin one-ply yarn, how to ply the yarn (combine strands together), how to set the twist (so the yarn does not unravel) and Eleanor will also pass on her passion for the British wool trade and the fantastic qualities all sorts of different animal fibres can bring to this craft. You will literally have your mind blown with this mesmerising skill. You will produce a centre pull ball of yarn, using loads of different colours of 100% wool. Your hand spun yarn can then be used to knit, crochet, weave or simply gaze at in delight.

Spinning is a slow mindful skill, that is a mesmerising way to spend your time and is a great stress buster after those busy days at work and nightmare commutes. This is the most relaxing 'Spin Class' you will ever attend!

Eleanor aka 'Ezzy' takes the tradition Craft of Spinning yarn and adds a contemporary, colourful twist. After studying Fine Art at Goldsmith's, Ezzy brings to her classes a 'Can do' attitude and believes highly in the positive effects of 'having a go' at new crafts, rather than the aim for perfection. She strongly believes in using craft to relieve stress and anxiety, and spinning has a mesmerising effect.

Notes

Everything is provided in the workshop including a large variety of coloured yarns and fibres. You will learn how to spin yarn and take home your own centre pull ball of yarn. The 3D printed spindles are used in the workshop only so are not to be taken home, however there will be additional yarn blends and spindles available for sale at the workshop if you would like to carry on the skill at home. We will be spinning with 100% wool, so please do feel free to contact me if you have any concerns regarding allergies. Last but not least, spinning is fluffy work so please wear clothing you don't mind getting a little fluffy!
