Fibre Craft Tuition Available!

 

Have you ever watched Sleeping Beauty or read about Rumpelstiltskin and wondered what on earth a spinning wheel actually does?

Have you ever looked at a sheep and pondered over how the wool gets from their back to yours?

Or are you maybe a knitter, crocheter or generally crafty person who has always wondered what it would be like to work with your own handmade yarn and are itching to add another string to your bow?

Then let this be the year that these questions get answered and those itches get scratched!

 

One on One Tuition

 

Individual tuition available for both the drop spindle and spinning wheel in the shadow of the Campsie Fells in Kirkintilloch, East Dunbartonshire.

Learn at your own pace and focus on the areas that interest you the most, from fibre preparation and colour blending to plying and art yarn creation!

You will start with a quick lesson on the theory of spinning and the basics of yarn construction, moving swiftly on to learning how to draft fibre and spin on a drop spindle of your choice and, once ready, graduating onto the beautiful spinning wheel.

By the end of your journey you will be capable of spinning a variety of yarns and will have acquired the skills to complete your first hand spun project of your own!
