Drop Spindle Workshop (Spin Wool Into Yarn!)
April 23 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm$75
Come along with us on a wooly adventure! Learn the ancient skill of making your own yarn with a drop spindle. Wool growing is one of the most humane and sustainable ways to produce yarns, fabrics and clothing. We’ll take a walk to visit the farm’s rare breed Karakul sheep and learn about regenerative silvopasture practice. We’ll learn the skill of flick carding to prepare locks of fleece and then spin the prepared fiber into yarn on drop spindles. There’ll be lots to see and learn. For thousands of years, spinning together has been a way to connect and form community. All materials provided. Open to everyone – you don’t even need to know what sheep look like. If you’ve ever been curious about how to spin your own yarn for all of your favorite fiber arts, this workshop is for you!
Light refreshments will be served.
