CRAFTS AT LES LANDES
The home of traditional crafts
Come and learn with us
The programme for spinning workshops depends a little on the requirements of the participants.
There is an introduction to spinning on a wheel and/or drop spindle together with preparation of the fleece (washing, carding, etc). Also learning about the different fleece qualities of various breeds of sheep.
There is the opportunity to try other fibres such as alpaca, silk, linen or camel or to learn new skills such as different ways of plying. Dyeing or felting workshops can be tried including needle felting.
Workshops are informal and flexible. If a particular request is made either before or during your visit, we will do our best to accommodate it
We have a variety of reference books which are available for guests to consult on spinning, spinning wheels, looms, techniques, etc.
A maximum of 4 people per class/course for fibre crafts ensures individual tuition.
