2011 Summer Program

So important is the wool that sheep, camels, goats and their cousins have given to humankind, that myths and legends honor their generosity. Learn ancient arts of collecting, spinning, felting, and dying fibers from four corners of the world. Make a sheep, a camel, a yak and a rabbit, and samples of the arts they inspired and the cultures that cared for them.
