After months of planning, Fox Wire Farm Alpacas is launching a series of fun-filled classes for all ages!
All classes will be held on the farm to further inspire your creativity and engage your curiosity. Classes will be taught by talented instructors who specialize in the subject matter and activities presented, and class size will be limited to provide the participants plenty of one-on-one guidance. All necessary materials will be provided as part of the enrollment fee.
These are the classes currently scheduled, which are now open for enrollment. More information and detailed descriptions are available here.
Felted Animal Fun
Saturday, July 20; 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. (Adults 18+) Inspired by our farm animals and your own imagination, participants will learn the basics of needle felting while creating a small felted animal sculpture from our own alpacas’ fiber.
Plein Air Watercolor Painting on the Point
Saturday, July 27, 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. (Adults 18+) Enjoy the great outdoors, while exploring and painting the many beautiful landscapes and water views around the farm. This class is for all experience levels and will focus on experimenting with different techniques to capture the essence of what you see and appreciate how you paint. Participants will be encouraged to explore both realistic and abstract approaches.
Let’s Go Batty!
Thursday, July 25, 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. (Ages 11-13) This interactive STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) workshop will explore everything you’ve ever wanted to know about brown bats, including building a bathouse to take home. A healthy snack will be provided.
A Day on the Farm
Tuesday, July 16, 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. (Ages 7-10) and Tuesday, July 30, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (Ages 11-13) This day-long workshop is a great opportunity for young people to explore what working on a farm is like, while getting up close and personal with our animals. Activities may include but not be limited to collecting and cleaning eggs, feeding and watering various animals, learning to “muck a stall,” grooming our miniature horse and donkeys, harvesting and sowing fodder in our hydroponic barley house, as well as learning firsthand about the care of our alpacas. Participants will receive a Fox Wire Farm Alpacas T-shirt, a picnic lunch and healthy afternoon snack, and half a dozen eggs to take home!
All classes are open to the public; however, we also offer the option to arrange private class sessions for groups with particular interests. Additional classes will be posted on our website, on Facebook or Instagram as they are scheduled, so keep checking back and join us for some additional fun on the farm!
