SATURDAY 6th NOVEMBER 1.30 - 3.00pm

Silks Room, Newton Abbot Racecourse


Learn to spin using a top whorl drop spindle, enabling you to create your own unique yarns. Angela will take you through the basics of spinning, from choosing wool, how to start your spinning, draft your wool and turn it into a plied yarn.
You’ll go away enthused and with your own spindle (made in Yorkshire by Simon, the other half of the Adelaide Walker team), instructions and fibres so you can continue practicing and learning at home.

Initially a feltmaker, Angela Barrow has been a partner in Adelaide Walker for ten years and is now a committed spinner and weaver.  She loves working with British Wool and sharing her enthusiasm for fibre crafts
