The Hoswick workshop series at Shetland Wool Week
The Hoswick series of classes and workshops is back for Shetland Wool Week 2016. Organised by Elizabeth Johnston of Shetland Handspun and Niela Kalra of Nielanell, this year’s programme will see world-renowned Shetland knitters, spinners and dyers leading classes alongside a visiting international tutor - all in the friendly, village atmosphere of Hoswick on Shetland’s South Mainland. We'll be back at our 'Hoswick Hub' - the brilliant Visitor Centre.
Getting to Hoswick
As ever we can help get you to us, so Wool Weekers staying in Lerwick (or elsewhere) can easily spend a day or more at our Hoswick workshops. We also provide lunches for visitors attending full day workshops.
