Come and card and spin with Classic Carders and Jill Shepherd in the rolling hills of Shropshire. Jill will be leading the workshops with access to Classic Carders range of drumcarders, although the course will be suitable for any breed of carder.
Saturday is carding and colour day. You will be introduced to colour theory; how to choose colours and to develop your own inspirational ideas. We’ll be covering basic and more advanced carding techniques enabling you to get the most from your drumcarder.
Sunday is spinning techniques day, learning how to improve your spinning techniques to make the most of your custom carded batts. From spinning cobweb weight right through to the wildest of yarns. We’ll also be considering using batts for felting and weaving.
You can come for one or two days depending on how you wish to develop your skills. The cost is £55 per day or £100 for both days. The courses numbers are very very small to allow you to gain the best from one-to-one or one-to-two tuition. Jill is a qualified teacher and relaxed and friendly workshop leader with experience at national and international levels. Please contact Mandy for further information about the course and local accommodation.
