Course: Spinning paper yarn

Spinning or actually creating paper yarn is a fun way to recycle old silk paper, pattern tracing paper or packing paper etc. During the course we will use spindles to create the paper yarn. We will experiment with different types of paper and produce small amounts of yarn.

After the course, you will hopefully be inspired to make more paper yarn to use in knitting, crocheting, weaving and all sorts of other crafts and decoration.

The course is suitable for beginner spinners, as no previous spinning experience is required.

Course fee: €50
