Spinning and Weaving Classes - Ayrshire
« on: June 05, 2016, 04:43:01 PM »

Hi folks,

First post and a bit of shameless self promotion!

I, along with my better half run Weft Blown, a weaving studio based in West Kilbride, North Ayrshire.

Ange runs weaving and spinning classes in the studio at regular intervals throughout the year.

I will keep this thread updated with the next available class dates for anyone that may be interested.

If you don't live locally, the West coast of Scotland is a great place to visit, especially when the weather is like it is at the moment...26C outside just now  :)

Rob

Ooooh, spinning and weaving, fantastic, I wish you well.  Too far for me nowadays, but I will spread the word amongst the fabric people I know  :)

Thanks for the warm welcome.
Ange has been running these classes for a few years now and they have proven very successful.

I agree - something I've always wanted to do.
