Following the success of our recent 6-week wool spinning courses, we're now delighted to offer this 2-day wool spinning workshop for beginners!

The workshop will be held in our Studio at Unit 12, The Buttermarket in Enniskillen where you’ll begin by learning about the elements of a spinning wheel and fleece selection, before moving on to plying yarn, which helps get a feel for the wheel and the principles of tension. You’ll also be shown how to card wool and make your own rolags which you’ll then go on to spin into yarn.

The price includes all materials and tea, coffee and biscuits but you’ll need to bring a packed lunch. And don’t worry if you haven't got a spinning wheel as we have wheels available for use.

The workshop will run from 10.30am to 4.30pm on Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th July and 100% deposit is required at time of booking. Please provide your contact details when booking in case we need to contact you about the workshop.

A minimum of two students will be required for this workshop to run, and limited to a maximum of three.

Enniskillen’s Buttermarket is fully accessible and there’s a cafe and public toilets within the courtyard. There’s also lots of pay and display parking available in Down/Market street and surrounding areas.
