Sheep to Skein 8 Week Course.
This Sheep to Skein Weekly Workshop is an initial 8 week course running from Monday 9th January, 1:30pm – 3:30pm where you will be taken through the whole process from preparing fleece to spinning it and using it in a woven project.
What’s covered on the course?
Each session lasts two hours and over the 8 weeks we will cover the following elements:
Sheep fibre and how different breeds can be used in different ways
How to wash a fleece
How to card using hand carders and a drum carder
How to spin on a wheel
Different ways of plying yarn
How to warp up a rigid heddle loom

They will work at your pace so there is no pressure and you can take your time mastering each part. After the 8 weeks you can carry on on a rolling weekly basis.
This room is situated in the Baltic Triangle, right by the Baltic Market. There is parking outside the venue. They will provide refreshments and biscuits. There is a lovely cafe on site too providing veggie and vegan options.
The course costs £190 paid in full but can be split into 3 payments via the website
