    Two Linens classes

    Linen is an extraordinarily beautiful fiber to work with. Both classes will process flax, spin, & weave.

    Both classes will take place at our Farm Studio, using the quaint and cozy flax house in our spacious backyard, as well as the weaving studio in our lovely 1850s farmhouse. Depending on weather, we can move spinning wheels and band looms out into the garden to take in a breath of country air.
