Kid’s Intro to Wool Felting at Appleton Farms

May 5 at 10:00 am11:00 am

Appleton Farms 219 County Road Ipswich, MA 01938

Warmer spring weather means its sheep shearing time on the farm. But what to do with all that wool? As part of ArtWeek, learn about the time honored tradition of wool felting. We’ll start by learning how to wash and “card” the raw wool into soft fiber for spinning or felting. Afterwards, we’ll try our hand at making felt balls to be used for farm-fun necklaces. Wool, wood beads and decorative string will be provided, but feel free to bring anything special of your own to add to your necklace. We’ll end by visiting and feed our three lovely merino sheep. Recommended for ages 5-9, but all are welcome! Please register online; dress warmly and meet at Carriage Barn.
