Join Rachael Prest of Cat and Sparrow fame as she teaches you to spin your own yarn on a Turkish drop spindle.

Whether you’re new to spinning or are interested in trying out a Turkish spindle, this is a great one-day course.  

The class will cover:

the basics of fibre construction
examine how different fibres behave and what they’re useful for
types of fibre preparation and their qualities
the dynamics of twist
how to set up your drop spindle and get started
winding on your turtle/cop


You’ll have the opportunity to try spinning with different fibres and different preparations, as well as one-on-one help with any aspect of the spinning process that might be tricky. The course includes all materials, with the option to purchase a spindle at a discount on the day.  

Tea and cake will be provided. There will be a break for lunch half way through during which you can explore the delights of historic Frome and sample one of the many lovely nearby cafés, or you are welcome to bring a packed lunch.
