Enjoy a fun and relaxing weekend at Little Pentre Eco Retreats, learning lots of wonderful creative art yarn techniques.

At the end of the weekend, take your gorgeous art yarns home with you and have stacks more fun creating things with them :-)
11am - 5pm each day
You will need to bring your own spinning wheel (in good working order) you will need a wheel that can handle art yarns, one with a larger orifice and bobbin (ashford wheels do a conversion kit with jumbo flyer which is suitable, or an art yarns wheel is great, like an ashford country spinner) I have one wheel available to use during the class for just one of the students if you don't have your own yet.
To do this workshop you will need to have done complete beginner's workshops parts 1 & 2 or to have plenty experience in spinning yarn.
Includes over 600g of fiber & locks to spin, plying threads & yarns, tea/coffee/herbal teas & sweet treats
