Hardcastle Crags - 4 May 2012

Pete taught five people, mostly new to spinning, a half-day introduction to spindle spinning workshop at the National Trust's Gibson Mill property, in Hardcastle Crags, near Hebden Bridge.

Gibson Mill is a lovely spot and it's great that the Crafty Friday events, now in their second year, are so relevant to its textile history.

Sorry that this photo is slightly out of focus; it must have been their speed of spinning!

Here's another fledgling spinner at work, plus a close-up.
