Alpaca- What do I do with fiber- workshop at St. Mary’s

January 12, 2013

Don’t know what to do with your fiber? This is the workshop for you!
This class will help you understand “fiber” language. This will be a hands-on approach so you will get the chance to skirt, card, wash and felt.
We will also demonstrate spinning and weaving and share some ideas on shearing and fiber preparation. The most important thing in the alpaca business today is to use you fiber. The alpaca’s gift to the world is their luxurious warm fiber but that means we have to know how to process it.

Instructors: Sister Maureen Freeman, CSJ, director of White Violet Center/White Violet Farm Alpacas, and Candace Minster, fiber coordinator.

Where: White Violet Center for Eco-Justice
When: 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m.(EST), Saturday, January 12, 2013. – Sign-in begins at 9:30 a.m. with coffee and rolls.
Cost: $75, lunch included
Registration deadline: Jan. 4
