Petlins rigid heddle weaving class is a "One Off" class to give you a taste. You will weave a scarf.
Your spinning class may run for a number of weeks as you progress through the aspects of learning to spin fibres. Still casual, come as you can and continue on from your last visit. No block sessions, no commitment to come for 4 Saturdays in a row.
Come for one or come for many!
