Spin on a great wheel, make batts, try a blending board, have a great day out
6 March 2019 –09:30 - 17:00£25.00
Spin on the great wheel, make batts, try a blending board at the studio, Albany lodge/ Or just bring your wheel and have a spinning day out. From Beginner to Bored this is a sure and certain way to be inspired! Includes three course lunch and regular refreshments of all kinds…! Working at home can’t compete with the buzz of enthusiasm and excitement you get when others affirm your work and share their own successes and failures! We embrace failures and never use them as weapons with which to beat ourselves up; failures show us what to work on and trigger growth and confidence. There is always someone there who is guaranteed to put a positive spin on what you do. Help and new ideas are there for those who want them. There is lots of space to spread out for the whole day. Do some dyeing, warp up a loom, spread out your stuff and appreciate all that lovely woolliness. Everyone makes progress and has a refreshing day out – pick up new ideas, research, learn new skills or make a started on a particular project.
A real treat of a day in a supportive atmosphere with people of lots of ability or very little – doesn’t matter which! The atmosphere it always positive and helpful. A chance to meet others, often with related interests, such as Jacqui from Purlwise the answer to every knitters needs. Or people who keep rare-breeds.Or Jackie whose prize-winning Angora goats keep everyone supplied with the most luscious mohair…
