FARM TOURS
NOTE for 2017 Farm Tour: I participate on alternate years and this is my "OFF" year. I hope you will enjoy the tour on other farms and please, check back for 2018.
     Consider it a large "open house" with 34 participating farms in No. FL & So. GA counties throughout the weekend, hosting all manner of farm produce, livestock (exotic & otherwise), farm-to-table dinners, hayrides, vendors, displays & demos, etc. (My sheep love visitors with handouts and for next year, I'll have several displays & demos for weaving, spinning, natural dyeing, & paper-making.) These are all activities offered in adult workshops or Dyed 'N Wool Arts for Kids.
Note: See various demos and activities from Farm Tour '16 in a Prezi slide presentation.

( Every 1st full Weekend in November

November 3-5, 2017
Great Gulf Coast Arts Festival

A national "showcase" show, The Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival, one of the best in the nation, celebrates a wide range of arts from music and performing arts, to regional & culinary arts, and best of all, to craft and visual arts. The Heritage Area especially honors those practices passed down through our culture, all in a notable setting of another historical art - architecture.
After 36 years of participation,I'm still awed by its effect on the many visitors who come and support the artists every year. Look for me on corner of Zaragossa St. & Seville Square, surrounded by other weavers & spinners, potters, woodworkers, jewelers, glassworkers, and more.


Historic Seville Square, Pensacola: 9am - dusk.

for adults: TRI-WEAVING WORKSHOPS

The triangle frame offers a great way to weave LOTS of texture & color into a simple wrap in just a few hours. A unique process for beginning or experienced "yarn people", it weaves from two opposing corners at the same time.Use those colorful,glitzy, textured novelty yarns and also recycle leftover yarns from other projects to make a full-size shawl, scarf, throws, totes, curtains, etc. Optional frame provided (yours to keep), or DIY. We will learn 3 techniques, which you will continue at your own pace at home.
   
   Visit the sheep, and come weave at my "farmette", 291 Green Meadows Dr., Monticello. $70, +-frame: $25, through Visa/Mc (by phone), check, or Paypal. Pre-handout and map sent on registration.
        Call for details, 850-997-5505.or
email me.
    See more info and many samples of projects & workshops: Classes. Ask for one in your area. See finished items at Triangle Weaves page.



for adults: PAPER-MAKING WORKSHOPS
    A fun process that yields wonderfully textured papers, to be used for cards, mats, bookmarks, photo or painting backgrounds, bookmaking, scrapbooking, or journaling. Or mold it into 3-D forms: boxes, planters, etc.
     We will make simple frames with embroidery hoops & screening, grind a mix of pulp from colorful junkmail and abaca fibers (for strength), and embellish with other fibers, petals, yarns, glitter, etc. See samples.
