Explore Edinburgh's textile history by learning to make your own woollen yarn! Want to learn to spin wool but have no experience whatsoever? At our 1.5 hour in-studio workshop, you can learn the basics of spinning on a wooden drop spindle and get started on a whole new hobby.

Workshop attendees will learn the basics of spindle spinning, and take home the yarn they spin. In addition to this, attendees will take home their own drop spindle and their choice of Shetland roving braid all in a Wheel of Fate tote so they can keep up the craft afterward!

Workshops usually run three times a week, but we can add further workshops by special request, for groups of no more than 4.

Accessibility: This workshop requires fine motor skills in the hands and fingers, and is only for crafters ages 18+. You will need to be able to work with your arms elevated for extended periods, but we can build in breaks if needed. This workshop is generally both seated with the option to stand, but can be adapted to be entirely seated if need be. For more detailed accessibility information, please read our accessibility page or get in touch directly!
