NOVEMBER BASIC CLASS

We will be debuting our SUNY Cobleskill Online Basic Course on November 2, 2020!

Registration is now open.  Follow menu link to REGISTRATION to register online.

Course Fee $180 which includes SUNY Administration Charge of $30

The goal of the Basic Course is to have natural fiber producers gain the knowledge to return to their farm and organize their fiber for production. Management, harvesting, sorting are the building blocks for the course. Included also is information on yarn production to familiarize the students with processing at artisan mills. Participants  will leave the online instruction with the tools they need to get their fiber out of storage and separated so they can maximize yield and minimize cost at their mill.  In addition, it will prepare them with the background knowledge necessary to continue into the Advanced Course and if desired Apprenticeship Program.

The Online Course will start with a ZOOM meeting for all participants to review how the online program is set up, what is expected, how to submit assignments, take exams, contact instructor, etc.  This ZOOM meeting is mandatory and will be held on Sunday November 1, 2020.  Registered participants will receive a link and time for this meeting closer to the actual date.

All participants will receive a fiber sample packet in the mail after registration.  These samples will be utilized throughout the course for various assignments.  In addition, participants will be expected to provide their own fiber samples for certain areas of study.

If you have any questions regarding this On Line Course, please contact Wini Labrecque at 724-272-4285 or strwvr@gmail.com
