Spinning wool into yarn and then weaving it into cloth was a staple skill in the Roman world.

Join us to have a go at the ancient art of Drop Spinning, turning sheep wool into your own yarn. If time allows, you can then weave with your yarn.

Afterwards, why not see if you can find Roman spinning equipment in our museum Gallery?

Arrive at any point during the session and stay for as long as you’d like. We’d recommend at least 30 minutes. The more you spin, the more yarn you’ll have to weave with.
