Dunja is passionate about the ancient technique of spinning and runs courses in order to keep the practice alive. Her next courses begin in March, and you can sign up for spinning, weaving and even dyeing. Two units from these courses are accredited, through Agored Cymru, one at Level 1 and one at Level 3.
