Marion arrives with spinning wheels & drop spindles for everyone. She will take students through every process involved in preparing wool - from the fleece - to carding, cleaning, preparing the fibres to different ways to spin. By the end of the day you will leave with 2 skeins of wool made by 2 different processes working on a wheel supplied by Marion - a lovely woolly day. Marion Woolcott is an experienced spinner, weaver, dyer, knitter and crocheter as well as being a tutor and designer. She has taught many individuals and groups different aspects of spinning, specialising in producing exciting fancy yarns. Marion is also a founder member of The Wool Clip co-operative, where she sells her fine silk and merino woven scarves, yarns and clothing.
