We host an artist-in-residence every summer at our fiber mill and ranch. It is a unique opportunity to come to work with our animals, learn about animal husbandry and spend time working in our fiber mill creating small-batch yarns. Our goal for this program is to encourage artists to delve deeper into their endeavors in the fiber arts community. It is a time of learning and creating! The artist is provided time and space to create a project for the fiber mill.
We are excited for Christy to be joining us this summer!

Heather was our first artist-in-residence. She is a contemporary fiber artist specializing in woven design. Her work has been published in books and displayed in many galleries. Currently, she is a professor at Wayne State University.
