Distaff Spinning Workshop 10th August 2024

Distaff Spinning Workshop

A Thread of Time workshop 

10th August 2024; 10am - 4pm. Beaker Button, Fairground Craft Centre, Weyhill, SP11 0QN. 
£60 per person.

All tools and materials will be provided on the day and if participants wish to take the tools home with them at the end of the day there will be a charge of £25 for the spindle and £5 for the distaff. 

The workshop will commence with a talk giving the historic evidence for the technique, followed by tuition in dressing the distaff and spinning from it using the in-hand technique and then the short suspension technique. We will also demonstrate the use of wool combs, which is the ideal prep for distaff spinning, and participants will have the opportunity to try them for themselves.

6 places available. Contact us for more details
