Warm up for the Festival with Winterfest!

While we will be returning in May with our usual stellar lineup of in-person classes, we know a lot of you are only able to participate virtually, and it’s just not feasible for us to offer online and in-person classes at the same time. Our solution is to bring you two days of virtual fiber arts seminars on Saturday, January 29 and Sunday, January 30, 2022. Winterfest 2022 will be held on the same Lessonface platform that served us so well for the 2021 virtual festival and will feature the following instructors:

  • Jillian Moreno – Spinning
  • Kristen Walsh – Felting
  • Maggie Casey – Spinning
  • Kira Dulaney – Knitting and Crochet
  • Janine Bajus – Knitting
  • Judith MacKenzie – Spinning
  • Dia Robinson – Spinning

Our keynote lecture on Sunday will be The Cultural History of Natural Dyes with Pat Brodowski. Pat’s popular natural dyes workshops have been presented at Monticello, Montpelier, Common Ground on the Hill, and to local fiber arts groups. The lecture is free but registration through Lessonface is required.
