This is three fun filled days of learning how to process any kind of fiber (we teach with wool). This Class combines all of our three single day workshops into one super fiber weekend. Lessons will include washing, dying, wet felting, carding, picking, spindling, spinning, needle felting and weaving. Class size is limited (minimum of two and maximum of twenty) so enroll early as possible. Our classes go a step farther - we teach some history of fiber arts, and practical technology. Retreats are augmented by hands on learning tools available in the Educational Farm Museum and with a collection of fiber arts from around the world.
Retreat fee is only $179 (all three days), a $43 savings compared to taking individual classes. Any Single Day of the Retreat is available for $74 per day. We provide all materials. No hidden fees, rental fees or materials fees. All are included in the package. Each participant will take home several finished products. We provide snacks and beverages at breaks (twice daily). You will need to bring a sack lunch each day.
