ADVANCED WEAVING RETREAT AT SHEPHERD’S CROSS

Take your weaving skills to the next level at Shepherd’s Cross this March. Held only twice a year, this advanced weaving retreat is held over the span of three days and will send participants home with two finished products. 
 
Weaving 301 will be held March 3, 4 and 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. During this class, you will learn to weave on a harnessed floor loom. The cost is $233, fiber included, and you will leave with a trivet and either a sampler scarf or table runner to take home. Guests may bring their own loom or use one of the farm’s looms at no additional charge. Shepherd’s Cross is open until 5:30 p.m. each day, and you are welcome to stay and practice or work on your project. 
 
Beverages will be provided at two break times each day. Please bring a lunch each day; a microwave is available. There is a class size minimum of two, and a maximum of six participants. These classes go a degree farther than most, and teach some history of fiber arts, practical technology and are augmented by hands-on learning tools available in the Educational Farm Museum.
