“I am running a two day workshop at Markree Castle Hotel, Co. Sligo on March 9th and 10th. This will be a hands on and demonstration of how to get a fleece from its smelly dirty state to a wearable yarn or fibre ready to felt.
It will include washing, dying, using both natural and synthetic dyes, carding and spinning wool. Participants are welcome to bring a small amount of their own fleece and any spinning equipment they own if they wish.
The cost is €150 and this will include tea/coffee, lunch on both days and any materials needed.
Hopefully at the end of the weekend you will go home with a little washed fibre, some hand spun yarn, some hand dyed yarn and lots of new ideas and enthusiasm.
