Join the Wildwood Path and wool maven Nikos Kavanya for a weekend of campfires, fresh air, and using our hands and wild materials to take wool from fresh-off-the-sheep to naturally felted, spun, and dyed! We love learning skills from start to finish in the old ways of our ancestors, so we’re looking forward to gathering on a special piece of land and being together with one another and the wild as we approach the ancient working of wool with our curious minds and nimble fingers. There’s nothing quite like experiencing the magic of transformation from rough+dirty fleece to smooth spun yarn– and it all goes even smoother with song, feasting, and sharing in community with one another!
We will plan to be outdoors for most of the day, but we have indoor spaces available if inclement weather impedes our progress. Please bring warm, comfortable clothing, your own lunches and snacks, and a small chair, blanket, or sheepskin to help you feel good sitting by the fire. You may also want a thermos of tea, a journal and pen, and your own wool-working materials if you have them. We’ll send an email with more information, directions, and
updates closer to the date!
Camping is available by request; please email for more details. Locally, there are inns, bed and breakfasts, Air B’n’B, and more. Let us know if you need support finding a place to stay!
In order to accommodate our sliding scale policy and to make this workshop financially accessible, we are listing payment via Eventbrite as a “donation”. Please donate between $85 – $225 for the weekend (our break-even point is around $140/person), and let us know if you would like to offer work trade or barter to bring up your total contribution in non-financial ways. We want everyone to be able to be with us who feels the call in their heart! Tickets are available here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wild-wooly-workshop-tickets-50935903659?aff=efbevent
Thank you for honoring the sheep, the land, and your own capacity to make beauty with your hands by joining us for this special weekend of joyous remembering of the old ways of Wool!
