Sheep to Yarn in Three Workshops

Wednesdays: February 2, February 9, February 23

10:30 –  11:30 am
If you love fiber or have an interest in learning to produce your own yarn, you will enjoy these classes. This three-part series will introduce you to raw fleece from our own Icelandic Sheep and cover each step as it is transformed into hand spun yarn. During the first session, you will learn about washing, carding, and drumcarding wool and you will have a chance to try your hand with a drop spindle. During the second class, you will make your own spindle and create your own yarn. The last class will teach you to dye wool. No prior experience is required. Fee per class: $10/member, $12/non-member.

Reservations are required. Please call New Pond Farm at 203-938-2117, email Kristen@newpondfarm.org or visit http://www.newpondfarm.org to sign up online.
