We’re getting closer to spring and May 20-21st will be the 13th Annual Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival. The Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival is a must-attend event for anyone who loves fiber arts, including crochet, knitting, spinning, and weaving. Located at Masterson Station Park in Lexington, Kentucky, the festival brings together fiber artists, industry experts, top-notch vendors, and makers to celebrate the beautiful history and culture of fiber arts. One of the draws of the festival each year is the variety of workshops. Whether you are a seasoned fiber artist or a beginner, the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival Workshops have something for everyone.
For those new to knitting and crochet, we have beginner oriented workshops and demonstrations from some amazing teachers, so you can deepen your understanding of the craft and take your skills to the next level. Spinners and weavers will also find plenty of opportunities to hone their skills and connect with others who share their passion. Also offered are several felting, dyeing and eco dyeing workshops available for those who want to broaden their skill set. For those looking to start their own fiber farm journeys, we have classes scheduled to walk you through the journey from farm to finish.
Such a wide variety of classes available, and registration opens March 13th!
