Try your hand at processing wool the way our ancestors did.
At the tip of the Digby Neck on the Bay of Fundy, sits rustic and ecologically magical Brier Island, a stop over for migrating seabirds, where wild brier roses grow and whales swim in the nearby bay.
What better setting for an idyllic farm, dedicated to keeping traditional farming methods alive? Here Victoria Graham offers guests unique Hooking By the Sea Retreats. From start to finish she'll share with you an adventure in hand raising the animals that grow the sheared, skirted, washed, carted, hand spun yarn that in turn creates the art, that you'll be working on. She'll teach you all about it, while she serves up a dose of local history and folklore tied innately to the UNESCO Southwest Nova Biosphere Reserve.
Adults $50 per person; Children under 12, $25 per person. Call for reservations.
