On March 23rd, 2013 the Live Earth Farm Discovery Program will host the 4th annual Sheep to Shawl event at Live Earth Farm. Professional shearer, Bruce Wool, will demonstrate his trade throughout the day, while his wife spins yarn alongside him. Guests will participate in hands on demonstrations of every part of the process of making wool into clothing and art. For the first time this year Storrs Winery will provide tastings while their vineyard grazing baby doll sheep are shorn.
The Live Earth Farm Discovery Programs 4th annual Sheep to Shawl event, will feature hands-on stations demonstrating the entire progression of processing wool, local artisans sharing their wares, and Storrs Winery sampling their local, wine. The event will take place in and around our renovated turn of the century redwood barn rain or shine.
The Sheep to Shawl event is one of three annual, on farm celebrations open to the public; all of which aim to further our mission of helping local under served youth build confidence in learning to be active caretakers of themselves, their community and their environment. Children and adults will delight in interacting with our sheep and shearer, dying yarn, making drop spindles, trying knitting and crocheting, and washing and combing yarn, all with expert help and child friendly tools.
