In the session you will learn more about the history of sheep in The Royal Parks. You'll learn how fleece is prepared before spinning, how to use a drop spindle to create your own yarn and how to ply your yarn and create your own skein of wool. Perfect for knitters, crocheters, weavers or anyone interested in picking up a new skill! No previous experience is required - all are welcome.
