Autumn Artist Days – Marissa Silkroski – 10/19/19


Saturday, October 19
10am to 2pm

Marissa Silkroski – Fiber Workshop – create a basket or small rug from core spun alpaca

Includes lunch and all supplies

LOCATION: Silkie’s Farm

8 in stock



Core spun yarn is made with our alpaca fleece by spinning it tightly around a wool core.  It is soft, warm, durable and bulky which makes it easy to work with. We’ll start the day with a meet and greet of the herd who give us this amazing fiber.  Marissa will demo the crochet technique using fingers and a hook.  You will choose which technique you prefer and then begin creating either a basket with handles or a small rug.  We will break for a light lunch.  If the weather is nice we will be working outside so dress accordingly.  Completion of the project will depend on skill level but our hope is that you will take home a finished product and enjoy the day here on the farm.
