Watch spinning and weaving teams compete at the Surrey Museum

On your marks, get set - weave! Come to the Surrey Museum to cheer on local spinning and weaving teams as they participate in this traditional competition.

  • Watch as flying fingers card, spin, and ply raw sheep’s wool into yarn, then weave a beautiful shawl, all in four hours!
  • View real sheep being sheared, and try weaving on our heritage looms or spinning on real spinning wheels.
  • Kids can weave a bookmark, or make sheep crafts and pictures.
