Advanced Weaving Retreat
September 8 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:30 am, repeating until September 10, 2022
Shepherd’s Cross will host two advanced weaving retreats in September!
Weaving 201: Table Loom Weaving is a two-day class, which will be held September 8-9. 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: a table runner or scarf.
Weaving 301: Floor Loom Weaving is a three-day class, September 8-10. 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: a table runner or a scarf.
Both classes will be from 8:30a – 3:30p each day.
In-person or virtual options are available.
All materials included. You may bring your own loom or use one of theirs at no additional charge.
Please bring a lunch each day. There is a class size minimum of two, and a maximum of 6 participants. Shepherd’s Cross classes go a degree further than most, and teach some history of fiber arts, and practical technology, as well as being augmented by hands-on learning tools available in the Educational Farm Museum.
Shepherd’s Cross offers weaving and fiber arts 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.
Shepherd’s Cross and Gift Shop is open Tuesday through Saturday 8:30a – 5:30p, year-round (closed some holidays).
Registration is required. You may find information and registration form at: https://shepherdscross.com/weaving-classes.html or call 918-342-5911.
