Vacation Week: Farm Felting
February 22, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm$12
Warmer spring weather means its sheep shearing time on the farm. But what to do with all that wool? Learn about the time honored tradition of wool felting. We’ll start by learning how wash and “card” the raw wool into soft fiber for spinning or felting. Afterwards, we’ll try our hand at making felt balls to be used for farm-fun necklaces. Wool, wood beads and decorative string will be provided, but feel free to bring anything special of your own to add to your necklace. We’ll end by visiting and feed our three lovely merino sheep.
Pre-registration is required as we can not accommodate a large group with drop-ins for this program. Registration is by the child, but an adult must attend with them (at no cost).
Cost for a member child/adult pair is $12, and cost for a nonmember child/adult pair is $20.
