Note: please be aware that this workshop can be physically (and mentally!) challenging and that a reasonable level of fitness is required. Be sure to discuss with us before booking if you have any medical condition (including allergies) that might affect your participation in the workshop.

It is extremely important that appropriate clothes are worn for these workshops; we recommend that participants should wear denim-weight trousers with slim fitting long-sleeved top layers.

Shearing workshops take place in a purpose built shearing shed, sheltered but otherwise exposed to the elements. Weather can get wild in the Mendips, so please also be sure to bring sturdy shoes, warm layers and a waterproof jacket. 

Ticket includes: all tuition, refreshments (excluding lunch), equipment and sheep. Please note that all tickets are non-refundable unless the booking is cancelled within seven days of the event.

Additional: each student will be given their own drop spindle to keep and will leave with a small skein of their own hand-shorn, hand-spun yarn after a hard day’s work!
