PAWNEE ROCK — Heartland Farm will offer a FiberSpace program, teaching fiber art skills. Hours are 7-9 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 17, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 18.
A second session will be held from 7-9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22.
This program is for all levels, beginners to advanced. The public is invited to come and learn another fiber art or just get started. Instruction will be offered in several fiber arts skills: knitting, crocheting, spinning on the wheel or drop spindle, and various types of loom weaving. Each participant chooses one.
Marilyn Pierson, OP, said those who enjoy the January sessions may want to return in February to continue instruction or learn a different skill. After this program, some may want to continue a monthly four-hour session at the Farm.
“We have a number of looms, spinning wheels, drop spindles, crochet hooks and knitting needles available for your use. You may try ours or bring your own. When you register please indicate your choice of activity and if you will be bringing your own tools and/or fiber. We will have our own alpaca fleece and yarn available for sale if you choose, with small amounts of it provided as part of your learning experience and your workshop donation.”
