OFFF 2014 Workshops
Enrich your OFFF experience with a class from our incredible line up of instructors! Each year OFFF features artists and experts from around the Pacific Northwest teaching a riot of workshops in as many areas of fiber/fiber animal interest as time allows. Learn about everything from flock and farm management to fiber preparation, spinning, knitting, felting, crochet and everything in between. Take a beginner class to start a new area of interest … or take a higher level class to deepen your knowledge and skill. This year OFFF is celebrating Shetland Sheep and the craft of felting. You’ll find these featured in several classes. It’s our way of joining the celebration!
2014 Workshop mail-in registration is now closed.
On-site registration for any remaining openings will take place at the festival on a first-come-first-serve basis. See On-Site Registration below.
