January Drop Spinning Workshop

It’s a new year, and the guild has a lot of plans for 2016! The first thing on our list is a spindle spinning workshop.

Introduction to Drop Spinning
Sun, January 24, 2pm – 5pm at The Constant Knitter, Francis St, Dublin 8
Create your own unique handspun yarn using a drop spindle. In this 3 hour workshop, we will talk about fibre types, fibre preparation, and a bit about yarn structures. Then, learn how to transform spinning fibre into yarn! This work shop also covers plying yarn and the finishing techniques of skeining your bespoke handspun. Turning fluff into string is an addictive and fabulous from of fibre fun! No previous spinning experience needed. Spindle and fibre included. Book here.

  1. Hi I am interested in joining your guild and soo disappointed to see I missed your training course last Sunday. I would like to know what other courses you will be giving. We have some of our own wool and I am interested to learn to spool/spin

    • Ann, we hope to have another spinning workshop in the near future, since the first went so quickly! Also there will be a dyeing workshop coming up too. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or sign up for the newsletter and you will hear about them.
