Improve Your Spinning
Improve your spinning and enjoy some quality time at Knuston Hall with a supportive group of unassuming spinners, weavers and dyers who just love what they do.
Never mind if you can’t spin very well, help and advice is included or simply arrange a personal tuition session with me. Everyone in this small friendly group has learned, or is learning here, and you will find them all very helpful and encouraging.
Learn New Techniques
Learn different techniques such as coils, worsted draw, woollen draw. Prepare rolags and punies and make your spinning a pure pleasure (that’s why you do it!). If your spinning is not joy then something needs to be done about it – because it should be pure pleasure and it can be! Spinning and weaving is where you spend your quality time, so it needs to be the best it can be. Spin with love. Feel the joy of making an arms length of yarn at a time. Spin for Joy. And Weave for Joy. This day is quality spinning in a quality environment.
The day includes a delicious 3 course lunch at 12.45 with Pimms or Mulled wine depending on the weather, and home-made refreshments at 10am and 4 pm. The meal is served in the newly refurbished dining room and refreshments in the beautiful hall of a typical Georgian Country House where you can see a painting relevant to our weaving history. There is no warmer welcome or happier day to be found than at Knuston Hall, and you will leave revived and inspired.
