AHSW pixSpinning Demonstration and drop in with the Ayrshire handspinners

Sat 15 Nov, 11am to 2pm
Doon Valley Museum,

A great opportunity to view this ancient craft form in action as the Ayrshire handspinners hold their monthly meet in the Doon Valley Museum as part of The Droving Project series of workshops and events.
There will be an opportunity to have a go at spinning for those who wish.
The Doon Valley Museum is one of Dalmellington oldest buildings and used to be weavers cottages, so it is fitting that this craft form, closely interlinked with the pastoralist past of the area, takes place in this venue.
Free and all are welcome to drop in and enjoy the ambience!
