Join us in the summer of 2022 for a weekend of fun and fiber with you favorite little one. This fiber camp for kids ages 6-14 is designed to give all participants a chance to make art together. Sara Bixler, the owner of Red Stone Glen is thrilled to be able to put her degree in K-12 Art Education into practice alongside a talented group of educators. During our time together participants will rotate between several stations where they will be introduced to spinning, weaving, knitting and dyeing. Projects are geared to a wide range of ages and skill levels. All tools and materials are included with your tuition and will be taken home to continue practicing newly acquired skills.
Participants are invited to stay after class on Saturday for a campfire, cookout and a reading by Tom of his new children’s book “Spinning Tales”. Please let us know if you plan to stay for the evening activities so we can plan for food quantities. Snacks and water will be provided throughout the day, but we ask you to pack a lunch for your mid-day meal on Saturday and Sunday. If you are not local please visit our Accomodations Page for a listing of recommended hotels and BnBs in the area. If you’re feeling adventurous feel free to tent out under the stars with our own kids. When calling to register please ask for more information.
**Registration cost is per person. This includes adults as each member will receive a maker’s kit. To register yourself and you little(s) please give us a call here at the studio so we can obtain more information regarding allergies, specific information regarding age and more details on our daily schedule. We look forward to having you join us with your favorite little people, perhaps the next generation of makers!
