- Ages 10 to 17
Are you curious about sheep, the fleece that grows on their backs, and how wool is transformed into cloth? If so, this class is for you. We will visit a flock of sheep, explore various ways to create braids and bands, and learn to knit and weave. This class is supported by The American-Scandinavian Foundation.

About the Instructor
Laura Demuth has been a weaver for over 30 years and enjoys all aspects of fiber production, from raising the sheep to taking a finished piece off the loom. Because she lives on a small acreage just seven miles northeast of Decorah, Vesterheim has been a continual source of education and inspiration throughout her weaving career. Laura has focused on traditional weaving structures and techniques, and is a Vesterheim Gold Medalist. She has taught classes in traditional Scandinavian weave structures at Vesterheim and John C. Campbell Folk School.
