~ Custom Fiber Art Classes & Retreats ~

 

 

Teaching from her studio, in the 150 year old barn, Kim offers the opportunity to create and connect through custom fiber art retreats and private classes. Students & farmstay guests may choose between classes in felting, drop spindling, fiber preparation, needle felted murals, and natural dyeing.

Kim has taught fiber art classes to a variety of people, across all professions. She has worked with:

  • knitwear and fashion designers from New York City, who wanted to understand the “big picture” of wool production.
  • professional milliners who wanted to understand the origin of wool felt-from sheep to hat.
  • art teachers who desired to add fiber arts to their curriculum and wanted ideas for how to introduce fiber art to young children.
  • parents on vacation with their children who saw the value in spending time with their child, creating, laughing, and exploring.
  • homeschooling families who wanted to extend their art curriculum and learn how fiber art can teach skills in other curriculum areas.
  • friends reuniting who desired to learn a new skill together.
  • families and wedding parties wanting to decompress and participate in a “team building” farm activity.
  • children who came to experience farm life and explore the creative process through wool and fiber arts.
