Fiber Fun and Weaving Class

  • Time: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Whether you knit, weave, spin, crochet or just want to pet the alpaca, you won’t want to miss this excursion. We’ll depart from the Lexington Center by 8 a.m. in provided transportation to Butterfield Alpaca Ranch nestled in the rolling hills near Harlan County Reservoir or you can meet us onsite. With a focus on the luxury fiber produced by these elegant and graceful animals, they raise both the Hucaya and Suri alpaca breeds. Tashia will educate us and let us shop her beautiful offerings.

We will arrive at Phillipsburg, Kan., for lunch together (not included in the price) and then travel up the street to The Shepherd’s Studio for our introduction to weaving class with Sally Brandon. Students will complete at least one coaster and one placemat as they try out different types of pre-threaded looms and will learn about the parts of the loom, the advantages of each kind of loom, and basic weaving techniques as well as having a demonstration of loom threading and dressing.
