Beginner Spinning Classes
Learn the basics of spinning, rent a wheel and practice at home. Come back to learn to ply when you have two bobbins full. Student wheels available for rent at $10.00 per week or $35.00 per month. Deposit required.
Contact us to schedule a day & time
Description: Suitable for ages 6 and up. Beginning to spin can be easy for some, tricky for others. Marty has figured out a way to get individuals started on a wheel by breaking it down into individual steps. First train your feet, then your hands, and put it all together. For continued support, we will connect you with a group that can offer you much more.
By appointment as scheduled for individuals (allow up to 2 hours). Contact us to arrange a time.
$15.00 per hour (usually 2 hours) plus you purchase roving or batts to spin (about $10.00).
Portrait of Ewe Class
10 am – 3 pm
This class will guide you through the creation of a needle felted portrait of one of our sheep. The final product is suitable for framing. $65 includes fiber materials – needle felting tools available for purchase separately or bring your own. Bring a bag lunch. Register here.
Part I & II: by appointment
This art form involves melding together colorful wool fibers into a wool base using hot water, a bit of soap, and a hand sander (without the sandpaper). This base, once dry, can be used as a background for an artful creation. Bring one or more images to guide your color selection. During part one, we will make the background. During part two, we will embellish your background with needle felted colorful detail. Take either one or both parts – if only doing part two, let Marty know you would like to purchase a background to needle felt.
Fee:$45.00 per person includes materials – please register here.
We will schedule a class for your group of 3 or more or a lesson for you at a mutually agreeable time.
10% off fiber purchased at the class. Young children need to be accompanied by parent.
