Event description

Description

Details: Mairi Lock is an accomplished spinner and craftswoman. She will help you develop your skill in spinning on a wheel and on a spindle. Bring your own wheel if you have one or contact Rebecca Oaks rebecca.oaks@btinternet.com prior to the day if you need to borrow one.

This day course is to provide guidance to people who can already spin and make a yarn of some description. The purpose is to help you improve your technique, and maybe try something different. We will look at preparation and spinning technique. All participants are expected to bring either a spinning wheel or drop spindle. There will be some fibres to play with but if you have a fleece or other fibre you want some help with then bring them with you. Please only bring washed fleece. If you have hand carders, flick carders or dog combs bring those with you. There will a drum carder to use for blending colours, and a blending board for you to try. No English long wool combs due to the potential hazard of the spikes. There will be a separate charge for some of the fibres used or bring your own. There will be fibres you can buy to take home to try as well.

Materials: Suggested £5 - £10

There are no charges for courses if you are unemployed or in full time education, (proof required*). If there is charge for materials you will be expected to pay this and cash should paid to the trainer on the day.

Directions:

From the South: From the M6 Junction 36: take the A591 and then A590, signed Barrow-in-Furness. Though we are only 10 mins on valley roads from the A590 at Newby Bridge, for your first visit we STRONGLY ADVISE staying on the A590 to Greenodd. At Greenodd take the A5092, signed Whitehaven/Workington, for quarter of a mile, then take the first right, a minor road signed Colton/Oxen Park. Continue through Oxen Park for a further 2 miles. Rookhow is on the left, after you see (but do not follow!) the sign for Ickenthwaite.

From Barrow in Furness: Take A590 east to Greenodd, then as above.

From Hawkshead: Follow signs to Grizedale and continue for a further 3 miles beyond the Grizedale Visitor Centre through Satterthwaite village as if heading towards Ulverston. Rookhow is 2 miles south of Satterthwaite, and 1 mile south of Force Forge hamlet, on the right. If you see a sign for Ickenthwaite you have just missed our drive!
