Shepherd’s Cross is hosting a weaving retreat!
Weaving 201 is a two-day class, held September 9-10. You will learn to weave on a harnessed table loom. Cost is $133 fiber included, and you will leave with at least one finished product, such as a table runner.
Weaving 301 is a three-day class, held September 9-11. You will learn to weave on a harnessed floor loom. Cost is $233 fiber included and you will leave with at least one finished product, such as a table runner or a scarf.
Classes will be held from 8:30a – 3:30p. (You can also attend virtually.)
You may bring your own loom or use one of theirs at no additional charge. You will learn to warp and to weave, completing a sampler scarf or table runner to take home. Shepherd’s Cross is open until 5:30 pm each day, and you are welcome to stay and practice or work on your project.
This class is offered as a group in February & September each year, or as private lessons throughout the year. Please bring a lunch each day; a microwave is available. There is a class size minimum of two, and a maximum of six participants. Shepherd’s Cross classes go a degree further than most, and teach some history of fiber arts, and practical technology.
This retreat is held at Shepherd’s Cross, an authentic working farm, just north of Claremore OK on Scenic Route 66. Shepherd’s Cross hosts a mini wool mill, processing the wool from their flock. There is also Shepherd’s Shop, a quaint country gift shop. It features a host of festive handmade and farm-related gifts and wares from many gifted artisans. The Gift Shop and Museum are open weekly, Tuesday through Saturday, 8:30 am – 5:30 pm.
Shepherd’s Cross is an accredited Agritourism facility, a Made in Oklahoma Company. Shepherd’s Cross is also Animal Welfare Approved Sheep Farm, and processes Animal Welfare Approved fiber (chemical free, hormone free, free range, natural). Shepherd’s Cross is home to Heart of the Shepherd, a non-profit organization (501-C3) that operates at the farm and establishes wool mills in remote, impoverished areas around the world. As well as teaching Biblical references to the harvest, the animals, farming and gardening.
