Come out and meet Northwest Park’s very own Cotswold sheep and learn how we turn Fleece to Fiber! Learn about their life cycle, anatomy, and compare them to other animals within our barn. Homeschool students, ages 5 to 12, will also get the opportunity to experience the process it takes to turn their raw fleece into cloth through hands-on activities. Students will wash, dry, and card the wool, before spinning the wool into yarn and learning how it is dyed and woven. Choose either the morning session (10:30 AM to 11:30 AM) or the afternoon session (2:00 PM to 3:00 PM). $8.00 per student. Registration needed by calling 860-285-1886.
