Registration for our 2021 Fiber Arts Seminars is now open!

Registration for our 2021 Fiber Arts Seminars is now open at https://www.lessonface.com/sheepandwool.

Classes will be taught via Zoom, and all you need is a computer or tablet with a webcam that is connected to reliable high-speed Internet. Topics include crochet, dyeing, ecoprinting, felting, knitting, spinning, and weaving. Most classes are two or three hours long; there are several classes that consist of two two- or three-hour sessions with a break in between; there is one two-day class which has two sessions each day.

A downloadable version of the class descriptions is available here.

We will once again be accepting ONLY online registrations. We will not be using Eventbrite for registrations this year. Instead, we will be using the Lessonface platform for both registration and access to the online classes.

Materials kits are required for some classes. These kits will be purchased directly from the instructor. Ordering instructions will be available in Lessonface once you have enrolled. To allow enough time for the kits to arrive prior to the start of class, registration for those classes requiring materials kits will close on April 3. For all other classes, registration will remain open until the class starts or the class is filled, whichever comes first.

If a class is full and you want to be added to the waitlist, this year you just click the “Join Waitlist” link on the class page in Lessonface. Easy!

Your first point of contact if you encounter any problems with the registration process should be Lessonface themselves. They are are available seven days a week. Specific questions about the classes should be sent to .
