We teach spinning on both a drop spindle and a spinning wheel. It is aimed at total beginners to get the grips of drafting and basic spinning. The class is taught on a one to one basis and to suit your pace. You will learn how to draft, card, spin and ply.


What to Bring on the Day

You can either bring your own spindle or wheel or use one of the teaching ones. Tea and Coffee will be provided on the day. Please bring a packed lunch.


Classes are run on either a Tuesday or a Friday and you can call the shop on 01629 734100 to book a lesson.


We charge £15 an hour, this includes the tops and fleece that we will be using. The length of the lesson can be set according to your needs.

“I haven’t used my sewing machine for years and was quite nervous about starting again. I needn’t have worried, the course was taken at my pace and there was loads of help from Anne. I’m looking forward to the rest of the training days in the ‘Block’ and have resolved to keep sewing!!”

Sally Johnson, Block a Month

“I booked the Block a Month early this year and it’s been fabulous. I have had loads of help from Anne and the team and feel much more confident in my sewing skills now. Let’s just say a few family members will be getting homemade Christmas presents this year. Next year, I may give embroidery a try!!”
