Mountain View, Arkansas – – Do your eyes light up at the sight of yarn? Do you love the feel of woven fabric? Do you like to make beautiful things with your own hands? Then you might just be a fiber artist!

Fiber Frenzy at the Ozark Folk Center State Park on August 9 and 10 is two days of spinning, sharing, dyeing, combing, sheep, goats, rabbits and lots of fun. Classes are offered in fiber arts such as Felted Sculpture; Off-loom Weaving; Blending Fibers and Colors with a Hackle; Angora rabbit workshop; Understanding Icelandic Fleece; Simply Shetland; Sari Silk Safari; Beginning Spinning; Natural Dyeing and much more.
