In this DAY LONG workshop, you will learn how to card and spin wool and you will make and take home your own homemade drop spindle. Designing a tapestry using your own art supplies, you will weave a small tapestry on a frame loom. The focus in the morning is learning to card and spin yarns that you will weave into your tapestry. Through the afternoon your weaving will build up with natural fibres from local suppliers. All supplies will be provided but you should bring a small watercolour kit, pencil crayons or pastels. Hand made turned wooden spindles will be available for purchase.
