Upcoming on-farm workshops
Petals & 'Pacas - a Floral and Fiber foray (TBD - August 2019)
Using our seasonal, farm fresh blooms, participants will craft their own flower crown. Afterwards, guests will wander over to our alpaca herd for a one-of-a-kind styled photo shoot! This will be a fun afternoon on the farm - a perfect way to learn a new skill, experience farm life and unwind with friends. And did I mention wine...?
Natural Dyeing - an exploration of local color (TBD July 2019)
This workshop will provide an introductory overview of the natural dyeing process. In touring the gardens, students will learn the different dye plants that grow in our climate, and how to harvest each for maximum color and long term storage. Using water-based extraction, a hands-on dyeing experience will provide participants the opportunity to transform our homegrown alpaca fibers, as well as silk ribbons and scarves, all the shades of the rainbow. This workshop is a beautiful blend of art and science - attendees of all skill levels will leave inspired!
