CLAREMORE, Okla. — This is three fun filled days of learning how to process any kind of fiber (we teach with wool). This Class combines all of our three single day workshops into one super fiber weekend. Lessons will include washing, dying, wet felting, carding, picking, spindling, spinning, needle felting and weaving. Class size is limited (minimum of two and maximum of twenty) so enroll early as possible. Our classes go a step farther – we teach some history of fiber arts, and practical technology. Retreats are augmented by hands on learning tools available in the Educational Farm Museum and with a collection of fiber arts from around the world.

Shepherd’s Cross offers these and other classes year round, on an individual or group basis.

Shepherd’s Cross hosts a mini wool mill, processing the wool from their 200+ sheep on site.
Heart of the Shepherd, is a non-profit organization (501-C3) that operates at the farm and establishes wool mills in remote, impoverished areas around the world. Heart of the Shepherd teaches Biblical references to the harvest, the animals, farming and gardening. The Bible Garden is available for guided or self-guided tours; audio or visual or both.
