I love to create with wool, blending imagination and skill to make items of beauty and utility from the fabulous fleece of our native breed sheep. This wonderful raw material - sheep’s fleece - was the inspiration for founding All in a Spin when I left my job as a college manager in 2011 to move to Wales.
I love to teach and encourage others, to share my skills and knowledge. My expertise has been gained both through learning from people whose own skills were passed on down the generations and by studying with masters of their craft from around the world.
Whatever your level of experience, here at All in a spin you can learn to spin, learn to weave or learn to dye something beautiful and unique, or improve your skills to advanced level.
In association with Agored Cymru and Creo Skills, I have developed accredited courses in hand spinning at Level 1 (beginners) and Level 3 (A Level standard). These unique, nationally recognised courses are available exclusively through All in A Spin.
Do you have sheep and no time to spin their wool? Then why not commission me to turn that fleece into very special yarn. Whether it's super-chunky Herdwick for floor rugs or luscious alpaca for lace shawls, I can turn that fleece into the yarn of your dreams.
