Let’s get in touch with the process of what goes into our beautiful wool clothing! We will start by meeting the three heritage breeds on the farm and learn about different types of wool. Then we move into washing, carding and spinning the wool into yarn. A natural dye pot will be cooking over fire with plants grown and harvested on the farm. See some inspired finished products and take your yarn sample home to add into your own WILD creation. Wool is provided.
Join us for this workshop on Saturday, October 2 at 2:00pm at Wild Roots Farm in Livingston Manor, NY.
Tickets for this workshop are $20.
This workshop will also be available via Zoom. Stay tuned for the Zoom link!
