Plymouth Yarn Spinning Welcomes You


About Me

My name is Charlotte and I started my career as a primary school teacher. After 13 years of teaching I left to become a dog walker. Not wanting to completely leave teaching behind I decided to turn my hand to teaching something I am very passionate about, spinning yarn. 

Spinning yarn has been an unexpectedly varied journey that has allowed me to be creative. I have learnt lots from those I have met over the years and have attended a number of spinning courses myself. A few years ago I decided to embark upon the Foundation Certificate of Spinning, through which my knowledge and love of spinning grew. Now I enjoy passing my knowledge onto others.

In todays busy world there is nothing greater than going back to basics. Spinning in itself is a mindful and enjoyable activity but it also enables us to show our creativity and experiment with colours and textures. What could be greater than creating something truly from scratch?
