Learn To Spin Sheep's Wool on a Traditional Spinning Wheel!

Sign up for a traditional spinning wheel class to learn how to spin sheep's wool from A to Z in a picturesque atmosphere in the heart of the village of Deschambault, one of the most beautiful villages in Quebec! The class takes place at the Old Presbytery of Deschambault built in 1815.

The class consists of three sessions that will be offered on consecutive Saturdays or Sundays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This class will be offered in the fall 2024 on the following dates:
  • Saturdays, October 19, 26 and November 2
  • Sundays, October 20, 27 and November 3
  • Saturdays, November 9, 16 and 23
Maximum seven participants per group.

Seven beautiful ancestral spinning wheels, as well as the tools and all the wool necessary for learning will be at your disposal for this class. It is possible to rent a wheel for each week between the classes. If you have your own working spinning wheel, you can bring it and learn to spin on it. If you have a spinning wheel that needs a little TLC, you can bring that too, leave it to be repaired by a professional cabinetmaker and pick it up at the last class, ready to go.

During the lunch break, you will be able to take advantage of the proximity to the Dînette du Cap, the artisanal bakery Le Soleil Levain, the artisanal chocolate shop Julie Vachon, and more!
