Adirondack Folk School’s ‘ADK Fiber Experience’ Planned

Fiber ArtsThe Adirondack Folk School has announced its second ADK Fiber Experience Getaway Weekend event scheduled from Thursday night, April 24, 2014 through Sunday, April 27, 2014. The event will be held at two sites: the Adirondack Folk School and the Fort William Henry Hotel & Conference Center in Lake George. This year’s ADK Fiber Experience includes fiber arts classes during the day Friday and Saturday, fun events at night on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and free farm tours scheduled for Sunday in conjunction with the Washington County Fiber Tour.

Participants can knit and spin with Donna Kay, a master fiber artist from New Hampshire, do felting work with local artist Robin Blakney-Carlson and Carol Ingram, a felter from Connecticut, and weave with Tegan Frisino. There are classes planned in rug hooking, making stitch markers, knitted wire jewelry, wheat weaving, and more.
