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.
