FARM TO TEXTILE RETREAT


Full Immersion Fiber Workshop in Hudson, NY 5/20 - 5/21 taught by Margot Becker and Dee Clements (Studio Herron Founder) in partnership with Buckwheat Bridge Angoras fiber farm.

This two day workshop explores the process of textile creation from the very beginning.  Weavers Dee Clements and Margot Becker are partnering with the fiber farm Buckwheat Bridge Angoras to offer this Fiber to Textile weekend retreat.  Spend one full day on the farm meeting the animals, seeing a sheep shearing demo, and processing your own fiber in the solar and wind powered fiber mill.  We'll then teach you how to use your new drop spindle to hand spin the roving you just made into yarn.  Day two is a full studio day in the town of Hudson, NY at Drop Forge and Tool learning how to weave your homespun yarn into a beautiful textile on portable lap looms.  All materials and tools are included in the price and yours to take home at the end of the weekend!  Transportation from Hudson to the farm plus a locally sourced picnic lunch on the farm will be provided!
