About Us

Initially named SWIRL (Spinning Wool in Rural Lincolnshire), SWIRL Crafts is based in Louth and was born from a wish to share the love of traditional crafts whilst encouraging people to learn new skills.

We began by teaching hand spinning, but by request, now also teach other crafts including crochet, knitting, peg loom weaving and patchwork. Our exciting new courses, a series called Rags to Riches (recycling old fabrics), are also proving very popular.

With a flexible approach to teaching, tailoring our sessions to your requirements, we travel around Lincolnshire, delivering workshops, talks, short courses and demonstrations as well as 1:1 tuition and craft parties.
