Back To Events Wool being collected on a drop spindle

Spinning is a traditional and versatile skill that's a great addition to any textile or knitting crafts and also a relaxing and therapeutic pastime.

Learn how to spin wool starting from the very beginning with meeting the sheep and moving through carding, spinning, finishing and finger braiding. The price includes your own drop spindle and fleece to take home and keep.

Join Helen Bruce, previously a farm manager, who provides authentic medieval drop spindle spinning demonstrations across the country, including working with English Heritage.
