Raw Wool Preparation workshop
Sunday the 25th of July 2021
10am - 1pm.
This 3 hour workshop is ideal if you are s smallholder looking to add value to your own fleece, if you are a felter or hand spinner that has only ever used processed wool fibres or you're simply curious how wool makes it from the sheep's back to a finished item.
You will be provided with your own full raw fleece and throughout the hands on session you will learn how to skirt, wash and process it. There will be opportunity for you to use fleece preparation equipment such as the drum carder, wool combs and hand carders.
Much discussion will take place over hot drinks and home made cake and at the end of the session you will take home your own raw fleece to continue processing at home. If you have a fleece of your own, you are welcome to bring it.
This workshop takes place on my smallholding on the border of Bury and Bolton and is largely outside so please come dressed for the weather and wear sturdy shoes with an enclosed toe. Directions will be sent upon booking.
You can find the terms and conditions here.
