This will be a hands on demonstration with partipation of all students. If you are a beginner or if you know how to do some of these things, but not all and would like to learn, this is a great time to learn some new skills and at the same time have a good time with people with like interests. We will provide a lunch and all necessary tools & materials.
Fibers, wheels, accessories, books and fiber animals (sheep & angora rabbits) will also be for sale. You will not take home a finished project, but the skills necessary to do this on your own. You will take home a lot of information and knowledge. A finished project for each of you would take more than one day.
