Shepherd’s Cross is pleased to present their next Fiber Fest Weekend Retreat, August 20 – 22. Shepherd’s Cross is located at 16792 E. 450 Rd. in Claremore.
The retreat is three fun-filled days of learning how to process any kind of fiber. Class will be held from 8:30a – 3:30p.
Lessons will include washing, dying, wet felting, carding, picking, spindling, spinning, needle felting and weaving. Class size is limited (minimum of two and maximum of twenty) so enroll early as possible. Students will also learn some history of fiber arts and practical technology. Retreats are augmented by hands-on learning tools available in the Educational Farm Museum and with a collection of fiber arts from around the world.
Retreat fee is only $179 (all three days), a $43 savings compared to taking individual classes. Any single day of the retreat is available for $74 per day. All materials are provided. No hidden fees, rental fees, or materials fees. Each participant will take home several finished products. Snacks and beverages will be provided at breaks (twice daily). You will need to bring a sack lunch each day.
Shepherd’s Cross offers these and other virtual or onsite classes year round, on an individual or group basis. Shepherd’s Cross is an accredited Agritourism facility, a Made in Oklahoma Company that processes the only Animal Welfare Approved fiber sold in the U.S. (that is chemical free, hormone free, free range, all natural). Shepherd’s Cross hosts a mini wool mill, processing the wool from their own sheep raised on site.
Heart of the Shepherd is a non-profit organization (501-C3) that operates at the farm and establishes wool mills in remote, impoverished areas around the world. Heart of the Shepherd teaches Biblical references to the harvest, the animals, farming and gardening. The Bible Garden is available for guided or self-guided tours; audio or visual or both.
Shepherd’s Shop is open Tuesday through Saturday 8:30 – 5:30, year round (closed some holidays).
