Second Saturday of the Month, March through October 2017
Eight opportunities for gathering, learning, and making in tune with the land. Each session will be a profile of a different local fibre, including how to harvest and prepare it and ways to work with it. We’ll explore different traditional hand skills that are the foundation of many weaving techniques.
