Spinning and weaving tuition


My name is Gai and I am co-owner of FibreHut with my husband Dave located at our pretty little shop on the Blackminster Business Park near Evesham. I have a passion for all things fibre related and literally spin and weave every day! I have successfully taught dozens and dozens of people to spin and weave and it's great to see the enjoyment and satisfaction that they get initially and for years to come. Spinning and weaving can be easy to master and is a wonderful and fulfilling hobby.

I provide private one to one tuition in a number of subjects, each personalised to your individual needs from absolute beginner to advanced. I charge £39 for a standard 90 minute class. Shared classes are also available.

If you would like to learn to spin or weave call me at the shop on 01386 830396 (leave a message outside of shop hours). 

See you soon
