Come along and learn how to spin with a drop spindle with Mirabel Oliver in a class held at our Matatiki Toi Ora Arts Centre workshop, located upstairs in the former Boys’ High building at 28 Worcester Boulevard.
During this workshop with Annie Mackenzie and Mirabel Oliver you will learn an ancient craft that has been practised by people throughout the world for thousands of years, so that you are able to create a beautiful soft yarn to use in your knitting, crochet or weaving projects.
Here in Aotearoa we are privileged to have access to high quality fleece grown locally, right here on our doorstep, so let's use it! Wool is an abundant natural resource and has played a vital role in our fibre craft and textile production histories. In the class we will be using Polwarth from Starcrest Farm in Oxford, North Canterbury. You will have the opportunity to purchase a drop spindle ($15) to take home to continue your spinning journey.
Minimum numbers are required for this workshop to run.
