Get ready to unlock your creativity and expand your fiber arts skills. Join us for a weekend of classes dedicated to all things fiber! Our experienced instructors will guide you through four specific core skills: Spinning on A Wheel, Dyeing Fiber, Weaving, and Wet Felting.

You will have two ways to enjoy classes – ala carte (choose just the ones you want) or attend all four for a full weekend of fiber! Not only will you have the opportunity to expand your knowledge, but you’ll also have the chance to connect with like minded individuals who share your love of fiber arts.

Our cozy and welcoming atmosphere at the Nome Schoolhouse will make you feel right at home, and delicious meals by Chef Libbie will keep you energized throughout the weekend. You’ll leave feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to take your fiber art to the next level. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of fiber arts.
Spinning on a Spinning Wheel: Learn the art of making yarn on a spinning wheel, because it’s easier than you think! We’ll learn the mechanics of operating the wheel, and create our first single ply yarn. This will be a great introduction to spinning on a wheel, with different brands and styles of wheels available. We will compare the different wheels, and you’ll be able to try them out. Many of the wheels used in the class are for sale through the Schoolhouse.
