Follow spinning lessons in our Textile Cafe! It is possible to join the spinning lessons of Samm to learn this ancient and mindful technique. You can be a beginner or an advanced student to join the classes. The spinning lessons are shared with the knitting class students. This means you can also continue with knitting after you’ve spinned your yarn!

Samm has recently moved to Amsterdam from London. She used to work as a paralegal in fashion brands and charities, until she realised how unsustainable that lifestyle is. Through her intuitive, scientific, and experimental approach she has taught herself how to spin, knit, weave, dye, print, drawn then cut patterns and sew clothing. Samm’s focus is sustainability and sees a connection between food, medicine and fashion in the form of plants. She is developing colour pallets based on plants that meet at least fashion and one of the above two classifications. She is looking for communal garden spaces to share her colour palettes. Along side designing her genderless clothing brand, Maantha, she teaches spinning and knitting classes. She established the New Independent Spinners’ Society (NISS) to share the meditative art of spinning yarn with others to inspire a found form of independence within the NISS community.
