Fall Farm Visit Days

Let us nourish you! Come out to and get to know our farm & stock up for the winter and the holiday season in our mini-farm-store.

Fall Shearing

Would you like to see what sheep shearing is like? We can always use some extra help with skirting the fleeces at shearing time. Shearing is a busy day, so if you'd rather just visit and have a tour, another day would be better. But, if you'd like to lend your hands and learn while you do, please get in touch to find out more. RSVP for sure for this one!

Indigo Dyeing Workshop

with Andrea Belcham 

Indigo is a versatile and mysterious dye that can bring beautiful colour to your fibre projects. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to select and prepare natural fibres for dyeing and how to make a natural indigo vat. We’ll explore the Japanese tradition of resist-dyeing (shibori) to decorate cotton fabric, as well as gradient-dyeing techniques on our own Icelandic wool yarn. You will come away with two organic cotton napkins, a cotton tote and a 100g skein of yarn - all dyed uniquely by you - as well as the knowledge and confidence you need to start your own indigo vat at home!

 

The workshop includes a farm tour and discussion of how we raise organic wool, home cooked organic lunch and refreshments. 

Cost: $100, plus $38 materials fee

Please register by phone or email with your name and contact information. 

MAX 7 STUDENTS so register fast!

Andrea Belcham is owner of the yarn line Renard Et Fleur, which features Canadian yarns dyed using plants.
