Workshops

We offer educational workshops here on the farm, ranging from Animal husbandry, to the hand processing of wool from fresh off the sheep to a finished project. 

For every paying adult who attends the class they sponsor a school aged youth to come and take a workshop of their choosing, at no cost.  Or bring along your own school aged friend or family member to take the class with you at no additional cost!

Scouring, Carding & Combing

In this workshop we take a raw fleece, that is a fleece that has come off the sheep, and you learn to scour (wash) card & comb it.  

These are the first steps to preparing your wool to be used for projects.

You'll also get a history lesson on a few different sheep breeds, the differences in their wool and to meet the flock here on the farm. 

$25.00 1-2 hours

Spinning

In this class we take the prepared wool and learn to spin it.  With a variety of ways to do this you will get to see and try using a Spindle, a Mother Marion spindle or a Spinning Wheel.  You also get a lesson in the history of these tools and their evolution.

And as always, you get to go visit the flock!
