Au programme

For beginning or experienced knitters--we can start with the basics of casting on and the knit stitch or try more advanced techniques such as traditional lace patterns. Feel free to come with a pattern or project in mind. I will introduce you to the sheep who graze freely in the orchard and there will be treats provided to hand feed them. In case of inclement weather, we may need to move into the barn. Be aware that farm environments can have mud and muck. Appropriate footwear and weather aware clothing is recommended!

Alexis

From a childhood on a Pennsylvania sheep farm, I went to art school where I fell in love with fine craft. When I married and moved to a small island west coast island, I spent long quiet winters knitting and spinning and working with local sheep farmers.

Là où vous les emmènerez

In a heritage Mayne Island Orchard where the sheep graze, we'll sit in Adirondack chairs with our yarn, knitting needles and maybe a pot of tea and some apples for the sheep.
