"Sheep to Shawl" is coming to LexFarm this spring! Wildly popular Tufts class coming to Silk Fields Farm (behind LexFarm), taught by Kim Goldinger, local farmer and fiber explorer. Limited spaces available for our spring session on Monday nights, 5-8pm for 6 consecutive weeks, April 3-May 8, plus a special session to participate in the annual alpaca shearing April 23. The classes will start at the farm (weather permitting) and then head over to a private residence on Farm Road for the bulk of class time. We will cover all phases of the fiber process from animal care and shearing to processing and dyeing wool (using a selection of natural dyes) to spinning and knitting to create a final, totally unique product. The class fee will cover: fiber, mordant, dyes, carding and spinning tools.
This class is for adults (18+) with a maximum of 10 participants. $250 LexFarm Members, $275 Non-Members. Household-level membership or higher required to receive education discount.
Registration is on the LexFarm website: https://lexfarm.org/education/
