Little Lambs Fiber Arts



Little Lambs Fiber Arts

Little Lambs Fiber Arts is a sheep-to-shawl youth fiber arts program generously funded by the Francis R. Dewing Foundation. Little Lambs provides affordable classes to children from 6 months to 12 years of age exploring fiber art methods as sensory, therapeutic, and creative experiences. 


Youth Classes 

Little Lambs classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 5 PM. Classes now require a $5 registration fee. If you can’t attend a class, you can transfer your registration fee to another class time by emailing before the original class time begins. Registration is open until 5 PM the day before each class. All classes are designed to be taken by child-adult pairs or groups (i.e. sign up with your children, godchildren, nieces and nephews, or grandchildren). Minimum registration is 2 children plus adults, maximum is 5 children plus adults. Register only the number of children attending the class. You are welcome to bring unregistered younger siblings to class, and they can look at picture books from our Little Lambs classroom library or explore the Imagination Studio upstairs.
