Introduction to Raising Angora Rabbits
Tuesday, August 28th 6-8pm
St. Vital Park (Winnipeg)
Interested in fibre production and want to start small? Come learn about angora rabbits! These furry fibre friends friends allow urban and rural dwellers alike to produce their own fibre. Angora fiber from rabbits is soft and silky, and much warmer than wool. Learn about basic care and grooming of Angora rabbits and meet AJ an urban dwelling Satin Angora.
Instructor: Bronwyn Turnbull
Bronwyn is an urban dwelling farming enthusiast who does their best to make urban space into both sustainable food and fibre. Bronwyn has knitted for 15 years and got into fibre production after looking for ways to produce fibre in an urban setting. They fell in love with angora rabbits and now have two. They hope to expand their fibre flock (in a rural setting) to include sheep and angora goats.
