Create @ Blackwattle – Learn to Spin

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

18 Mar 2023 Once Only Event

Join Blackwattle and spinner extraordinaire, Deborah Everson White, on their alpaca farm in Murrumbateman for this fascinating and informative fibre spinning workshop.

The 7 hour Create @ Blackwattle session is designed to help yarnies develop the knowledge, technical skills and confidence you need to spin fibre into your own, totally unique yarn! A very hands on and practical workshop, you will use your newly mastered techniques to make your very own skein of hand spun yarn for knitting, crocheting or weaving into something fabulous!

The session also includes morning tea, coffee and an opportunity to join us after the session for a complimentary alpaca hand feeding experience (weather permitting).

Class Requirements:
To participate in this workshop you will need a functioning spinning wheel. If you are bringing a wheel with you, please ensure it has been serviced and is in full working condition.
If you would like to participate in the workshop but do not have a spinning wheel at your disposal, we will have a maximum of 4 wheels available to rent for the workshop. These are available at a cost of AUD30 each for use during the session.
