Drop Spindle Spinning Class


Open to the Public

Event Ticket Required

Join us for a fun wool-spinning class for beginners. In this hands-on workshop, learn how to spin your own yarn and receive all required supplies, including your own drop spindle — modeled on an original 1770 antique and unavailable in stores — to take home. We will work with wool from our own rare Leicester Longwool sheep and discuss the history of the drop spindle as well.

Not recommended for children under seven. Children 17 or under must be accompanied by a ticketed adult.
