About your host

I have been in love with wool since I was a child and started spinning yarn over 30 years ago. I branched out into felting more recently. I love sharing my skills in wool preparation, spinning and felting and the use of plant dyes. Join me in my workshop in the heart of an ancient woodland and enjoy a new experience

What we’ll do

Join me in my little workshop hidden deep in the old woods near Markree Castle and discover how to make wool yarn starting with a fleece shorn from a sheep. See how I wash it and prepare it for spinning and have a go yourself at making your very own yarn on a drop spindle starting with the fleece. Learn a bit about dyeing wool and see some of the plants that give wonderful colours
