Abergele WSD at Pensychnant

A day' s workshop on spinning, crocheting and knitting at Pensychnant
Nature Conservation Centre. Led brilliantly by Jenni, Bryn came in
round the edges. A group of 6 students encountered spinning  for the first
time on a variety of wheels. We had a Joy, several Traditionals, a Haldane,
and a castle-style wheel. Thanks to all who lent their wheels. We appreciated
what a wrench it is to part with this favourite piece of equipment – almost like
handing over the family pet. 
However, they have been reherded and will be returned this coming
Wednesday afternoon.  It was more an AGWSD outreach event, but earned
some money for the Guild to put towards our own workshops. Thank you,
Pensychnant for having us, and that lovely log fire.

  1. It was a brilliant, relaxed introduction to the joys of spinning and knitting in a beautiful setting. Thanks for organising it and I hope to attend another some time. Sian
