Dorset Guild of Weavers, Spinners & Dyers

Promoting traditional textile crafts across Dorset

Silk workshop 9th June

There are still a few places available on our silk spinning workshop on the 9th June

This workshop will take place at Leewood, about 12 minutes from Tavistock and will run for a full day (11:00 to 17:00).

There may be some silkworms that might just be spinning then but they will operate to their own internal clock and so this can’t be guaranteed. However, there may be some younger caterpillars too, by then.
There will be a wide selection of silk fibres available to spin: top, caps, noil, etc., and any aspect of silk spinning can be covered.

Please bring a packed lunch – tea, coffee, cake and biscuits will be available!
There is also a flock of coloured Wensleydales at Leewood and the chocolate lambs are delightful

There will be a maximum of 12 people at this workshop, with the cost of £300 (including materials) split between participants
